Crabgrass Puppet Theatre - African Adventure Tales!






Two funny folktales from Africa come to life with stunning puppetry, spectacular scenery, and infectious music. In “Koi and the Kola Nuts,” the young 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 their help saves his life! And in “Anansi the Spider,” we meet one of the most hilarious trickster characters in world folklore!
