In their tradition of producing high quality professional theatre at an affordable price, The Public Theatre is presenting the Crabgrass Puppet Theatre’s award-winning production of Anasi: SPIDERMAN of Africa on Sunday May 20th at 2pm. Perfect for children ages 4-9, this side-splitting selection of famous folktales from Africa starring Anansi the Spider is only $5 for children 18 years of age and under and $10 for adults. For parents and grandparents looking for a fun and affordable experience to share with their children, this is it.
Anansi is one of the classic trickster characters in world folklore. These comical folktales feature a dynamic blend of African design, infectious music and fabulous puppetry. Entertaining and instructive, see how the spider learns thru a series of hilarious mishaps, not to put his own desires ahead of the needs of his community.
This production of Anansi, Spiderman of Africa was awarded the 2000-2001 Citation of Excellence, the highest honor in American puppetry. Students, teachers, and audience members have rated this production as AWESOME! And with a ticket price of only $5 per child it’s “awesome” on every level.
Anasi: SPIDERMAN of Africa will be performed on Sunday, May 20 at 2pm at The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn’s Professional Theatre. All children 4-18 years of age are only $5! For tickets or more information call 782-3200 or visit www.thepublictheatre.org.
