Anansi the Trickster Spider: A West African Tale.

In this interactive show, Anansi manages to trick the various animals of the jungle and retrieve the stolen stories from Nyame- the greedy sky god of the Ashanti people. Through the pre-performance workshop, children become village dancers, monkeys, elephants, hippos, bees, crocodiles, spiders and more learning songs, chants and movement to perform in the show.

Join us for the workshop at 5:00 where you will become part of tonight’s performance! At 6:30, let the show begin!
