Professional Theatre For Maine

Anansi, Spiderman of Africa!

May 20 - 23, 2012

Run Time: 50 minutes. Performed by the Crabgrass Puppet Theatre

Don’t miss this side-splitting selection of famous folktales from Africa. Anansi the Spider loves to eat and hates to work, so he tries to trick other animals out of their food. But there’s no free lunch for this spiderman, because all of his schemes leave him hungrier than ever! These comical African folktales feature a dynamic blend of African design, infectious music and fabulous puppetry. Entertaining and instructive, see how the spider learns through a series of hilarious mishaps, not to put his own desires ahead of the needs of his community.
