When a great African king desires a wife, only the most perfect maidens in the land are invited to meet him. Mufaro’s pride and joy, his two daughters of very different dispositions, travel a half-day’s journey through a mystical jungle to be presented to the king. Along the way, the two girls encounter a number of extraordinary situations designed to test their kindness, compassion and spirit. Told with authentic African drumming, colorful staging and powerful choreography, this production of the Caldecott Award-winning African folktale unmasks the true meaning of beauty and celebrates the mystery and splendor of the African continent. Dallas Children’s Theater. Ages 5 to Adult.
