Anansi, the Story King


Anansi, the spider, wants to own all the stories in the world. Nyame, the sky god, has all the stories and is willing to give them to Anansi…for a steep price. When Sheri, the firefly, gets caught in Anansi’s web, she quickly figures out how to help him on his quest (and perhaps save herself at the same time)! With Sheri’s help, Anansi goes on a journey to find Nyame’s three items. Along the way, he finds out a thing or two about himself and the ways in which we are all connected, like the complex tangle of a spider’s web. An ensemble provides stories, music, singing and dancing as the two adventurers help Anansi fulfill his lifelong wish. Family friendly and for all ages!
