Ruth Draper was a pioneering actress in the early 20th century, taking the stage with only a chair, table and shawl as her props and transforming into myriad characters during her monologues. Now Academy Award-nominated actress Annette Bening is stepping into Draper's shoes and performing some of her most famous monologues, including The Italian Lesson, Doctors and Diets and A Debutante at a Dance. Bening is known for her roles in American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right, Mars Attacks and Running with Scissors. Now you can watch her play a harried society woman, debutante and etiquette instructor all in one night of Ruth Draper's Monologues. Learn More

It was a rare pleasure to see such a wonderful, creative production especially made for children. The actors were lively, they managed to actively involve the audience. The costumes were exceptionally well done, just very basic additions to their black outfits. There was music and dancing, hand puppets, shadow puppets, an impressive giant puppet, a live parrot, and even an informative question and answer session at the end. Bravo to all who were responsible for putting this show together.
Conceived and directed by Perry Daniel. Curated by Professor Patricia Harter.
Tall Tales is best suited for 5 to 11 year olds, but children of other ages are welcome and may appreciate it as well. The show is not recommended for toddlers/infants age 18 months or younger.
