This event is over.


A long time ago in a faraway forest in India, lived four good friends: a deer, a parrot, a turtle and a rat. One day, a hunter shows up looking for his next target. They try their best to stay out of his sight but one of them gets caught! How will they save their friend? What will they do?


Find out how these friends work together to save their friend from the hunter. Inspired by the Panchatantra, a collection of ancient Indian animal fables, this heartwarming story about strength in unity brings you on a journey filled with music, movement and merrymaking.


There will be a meet and greet session after the performance.
