This holiday show builds upon the previous years tales and presents folk tales about folk people.

The previous years Anansi Tales showcased the personification of the people through animals. This year Anansi Tales:Folk People edition builds on the repetoire and presents a number of stories about the people along with a few of the previous Anansi and Brer Rabbit Tales. Anansi Tales:Folk People Edition is a mixture of African American, African and Caribbean folklore presented in interactive theatre, storytelling, and puppetry.   

Folktales are stories that are traditionally passed from generation to generation orally to teach a lesson, gain insight on specific situations or just to pass the time.  

Anansi Tales: Folk people edition is a revival of folklore children's theater that is fun for the entire family. 

Our great cast of Griots or storytellers will put the story right in your family's hearts and minds. Anansi Tales: Folk people edition shares these tales with the whole family making the holiday season a time of communal sharing. Special kids seating available so that they can get up close into the action and be apart of the show.
