A class came for a tour of the theatre, where they were read a letter from Tortoise that explained the Hare had left parts of the story lying around the theatre and asked for their help. After a tour, the class had a practical workshop exploring the themes of opposites, seasons and friendship.
After lunch the class made a hare or tortoise puppet, before going to see the show.
