"Anansi, The Spider"
Hand & Rod Puppets

In the jungles of Africa, lives a tiny spider known as Anansi. Although small in size, he is known for his large ideas. One day he decided that the children of Earth needed stories to tell each other. But...all the stories were kept by Nyami, the Sky God. Ahhhh, but this is the first story. The story of how little Anansi captured Osebo, the Leopard Of the Terrible Teeth; Mmboro, the Hornets Who Sting Like Fire; and Mmoatia, the Fairy Man Never Sees. And in so doing, he receives from Nyami the golden box of stories to give to the people of Earth. Presented with authentic African music, colorful costuming and classical African design.
