The Adventures of Tortoise & Hare

April 2

The Next Gen – 1 PM @ University of Dubuque Heritage Center

Beginning with Aesop’s classic fable of The Tortoise and the Hare, this adaptation eventually finds them 10 years down the road, now with children of their own and exploring modern day distractions. Smart phones and video games create a new landscape of lost connections to life experiences. The Next Gen features Tortoise Junior and Lil’ Hare in a new kind of race, where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old Man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare come together despite their differences to find and save their children. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line? With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling, and the creative use of music, this production brings this tale into a new brilliant light. Visit www.DBQ.edu/HeritageCenter.
