A family-friendly musical production of "The Fabulous Fable Factory" will be performed 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 18, at Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center, 150 E. Wood St., Palatine.

Presented by American Eagle Productions, The Fabulous Fable Factory tells the story of Monroe, a 12-year-old boy who wanders into an abandoned factory and accidentally trips a lever activating the living factory of fable creators. The factory owner, Aloysius A. Aesop, explains that the factory has been idle for 2,000 years because it is missing the most important part, a "Moral Maker."

This musical adventure follows Monroe as he helps the fable makers re-create some of Aesop's most famous fables, such as "The Ant and the Grasshopper," "The Tortoise and the Hare," and "The Lion and the Mouse." This is an enjoyable show for the young and the young at heart. The bright and charming songs will intrigue the students and the morals will invite thought and discussion.
