Atlantic Coast Theatre features an incredible husband-wife acting duo from Orlando, Florida -- Don Gruel and Noel Holland!  They have performed on our stage many times over the years.  This year's show?  Aesop's fable gets a fun updated twist in a musical with audience participation. Bunni Hare wins every race, so how will Thomas Tortoise compete? The famous sports reporter Howard Crow-sell will be there to call the “play by play” in this fantastic fable with an anti-bullying message.  Don't want the fun and learning to end?  Why not take a look at the study guide they put together!
