Turtle Stories in the Turtle Theater! Turtle Tales Around the World is a program of folk tales all with Turtle being the main character. My pal Toby the Tortoise, helps me introduce the stories and their origins. These stories hail from many cultures all over the world. Some of these stories, I heard as a child. I use sound effects and percussion instruments on each story. I also include some musical games and participation songs. Thye Theater can be set up on the grass outside, (weather permitting), or in a gym or other large room. Inside setup requires gym mats to keep the turtle from flying away! The tent made by the Nylon Zoo Company, is 32' by 20' and 15' feet tall.
