This lively puppet show is based on four traditional folk tales from Africa and the Caribbean. The humorous stories feature Anansi, the trickster spider who sometimes gets tricked himself. In “How the Stories Came to the World”, “Tiger Becomes a Riding Horse”, The Magic of Five” and “Dinner for Two”, Anansi the Spider offers universal lessons of wit and cleverness.
Performed by Paul Mesner, founder of Kansas City’s award-winning Mesner Puppet Theater. Don’t miss this chance to see one of America’s greatest puppeteers!
