MCT's second Little Tales series presents folk tales originating throughout the continent of Africa. These tales chronicle the adventures of Anansi, the lazy but sneaky spider, Dukufruioko, the gracious and friendly turtle and Zomo, the wise and creative well as plenty of other animals and characters from the region. Using puppetry, masks, live action and plenty of audience participation, these performances are a perfect vehicle to introduce this young age group to the joys of live theater.

These productions are suitable for children ages 2-6.
