'Gems: The World's Wisdom Stories' uses storytelling styles from many cultures including masks, mime, inventive costumes and puppetry to introduce families to stories of wisdom from around the world. Each performance is tailored to the audience, with up to four stories being presented from the following selection: The Lion and the Mouse, The Boy Who Cried Wolf (Aesop's), The Drip Nose Boy (Native American), "The Lame Man and the Blind Man" (Middle East) and "The Tiger's Whisker" (Korea).
