Spring Play 2015 Androcles and the Lion
April 27, 2015: Taft_Spring Play 2015.
“Androcles and the Lion,” is adapted for young audiences from Aesop’s fable by Aurand Harris. It tells the story of a “friendship that was won by a kindness that was done.” The production will play twice on campus, and then embark on a tour to local elementary schools and libraries.
The play features performances by Peter Dzubay ’18 as the slave, Androcles; and Natasha Batten ’15 as the Lion. The two form an unlikely friendship. Ai Bui ’16 and Gerry Calles ’18 play the star-crossed lovers Isabella and Lelio. Kelly Park ’15 and Gaines Semler ’15 play the miserly Pantalone and the boastful Captain, whose selfishness stands in the way of everyone’s happiness. (Photo by Robert Falcetti/Taft)
