For Penn Family Day:
Aesops Fables at the University Museum

On Saturday, October 5, as part of the Penn Family Day, the Museum offers not only free admission for PENNcard holders and their family members (Museum open 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.), a 10% discount at Museum shops with PENNcard, but family-oriented activities including: What in the World? Challenge, Gallery Treasure Hunt, 12:30-2:30 p.m., and, Aesops Fables: Puppet Theatre Inside Out, 1-1:45 p.m., when master puppeteer Steve Abrams involves his audiences in everything he does, from the simplest form of puppetry using a paper bag, to an expert and funny presentation of Aesop's Fables. Kids are thrilled to shake hands with a strange, blue animal that lives in Steve's suitcase. Steve promises that "the audience will leave with smiling faces, a great turtle voice, and a memory of a warm encounter with the world of imagination and with their own creativity."
