African Adventure Tales

May 23 - 25, 2016

Winner “Best Performance” at the 2015 Puppeteers of America National Festival

Two funny folktales from Africa come to life with stunning puppetry!

Spectacular scenery, and infectious music bring two funny folktales from Africa to life. In "Koi and the Kola Nuts," the youngest son of a chief sets out on a wonderful journey in search of fortune, carrying only a sack of kola nuts. His kindness to the creatures he meets is rewarded when they help him find a new home. In "Anansi and the Talking Melon" we meet one of the most hilarious trickster characters in world folklore! Anansi eats his way into a melon but ends up too full to get back out. Trapped inside, he fools the other animals into believing that the melon can talk! Crabgrass brings these traditional tales to life through innovative puppetry, spectacular scenery, and infectious music. 

Great fun for Pre-K - 4th Grade
