Even though the source material may be familiar, Rogue Theater’s production of Paul Sills’ “Story Theatre” is not child’s play for Stuart Champeau. Using mostly college-aged actors, Sills’ Story Theatre meshes modern music with the tales of Aesop and Brothers Grimm in a play that earned a Tony Award nomination in 1971. Champeau had to teach the young cast techniques they were unfamiliar with, but he says it has been rewarding work.
Sills’ “Story Theatre” opens this Friday and has weekend performances through July 29.
