Director's Notes

It is my distinct pleasure and honor to have directed and choreographed The Fantastic Return of the Fabulous Fable Factory. This production is a sequel to an earlier play and marks the distinguished career of Dr. Joseph Robinette at Rowan University. When Joe first came to Rowan (then Glassboro State College) in 1973 he produced the first Fabulous Fable Factory. Now, 30 years later comes its sequel and the opportunity to celebrate Joe's fantastic career. The play is also a tribute to what we value most in the theatre at Rowan: the opportunity to use our imaginations and to rely on ourselves to create original interpretations of dramatic literature. I thank the production team and the cast for their inventiveness and willingness to "play " in the production process.

The Fantastic Return of the Fabulous Fable Factory has been a tremendous ride. I invite you, the audience to come and fly with us!
