ATLANTA -- This April, Center for Puppetry Arts brings back the beloved, fun-filled trickster tales of Brer Rabbit & Friends.
Audiences will be enthralled by these hilarious tales of a cunning rabbit, his infamous friends and their amusing attempts to stay out of a briar patch of trouble. Spencer G. Stephens makes his directorial debut and brings a fresh, modern perspective to this Center classic that runs from April 11 – May 26.
The fun begins as Brer Bear, Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit, Sister Mud Turtle and Sister Bird gather to sing an early morning ditty, but soon find themselves in a battle for bragging rights. Featuring live music with a range of Southern African-American styles, this sprightly competition of the ego invites audiences to see who is the swiftest, the strongest and the smartest of this gang of friends.
