Swazzle is now taking bookings for it’s 23rd original puppet show, Tortoise and the Hare.

Swazzle’s Tortoise and the Hare is an hilarious, action-packed reimagining of the classic Aesop’s Fable. Designed to fit the Summer Reading theme, Read for the Win, this brand-new puppet show features beautifully handcrafted puppets, imaginative physical comedy and engaging characters.

Upon losing the famous race to the Tortoise, the Hare challenges her to compete in other sports, including basketball, baseball, soccer and even a water mellon eating contest. Along the way, the Tortoise and the Hare both learn important lessons about good sportsmanship, healthy eating, teamwork and sharing the fun!

Tortoise and the Hare takes place one year after the infamous race in which the Tortoise beat the Hare in an unlikely come from behind victory. Now, Henry Hare and Tina Tortoise must work with their trainers, a Prairie Dog and Mole, to get into tip-top shape for the big showdown. Rounding out the colorful cast is an over excited Sports Commissioner Bunny, Woodland Sports Reporter Vera Vermin, and a team of adorable Cheerleader Mice.
