Affiliated with the Monterey Peninsula College Theatre Arts Department, the MPC Theatre Company has entertained the community for four decades with shows for both adults and children. The Ant and the Grasshopper is based on one of Aesop’s most famous fables and tells the tale of two contrasting insects, one dedicated to hard work while the other whiles away its time singing songs and licensing its name to be used by karate instructors. Slightly modifying the fable’s original moral, the play ends with both carapaced creatures learning a lesson, with the grasshopper coming to understand the value of work while the ant begins to appreciate the need for friendship and fun. The show is suitable for anyone older than 5, making it the perfect outing for families or groups of teens looking to make all-ages entertainment the next big thing.
