John Steptoe’s Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale

May 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $13 - $27

Based on John Steptoe’s book, this thrilling musical adaptation by Dallas Children’s Theater is the tale of two sisters whose courage and kindness are put to the test in a mystical African jungle.

Adapted for the stage by Karen Abbott 
Music and lyrics by S-Ankh Rasa
Produced by Dallas Children’s Theater

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 through a jungle and across a deep river to be presented to the king.

A combination of authentic African drumming, powerful choreography and original music brings the splendor of Zimbabwe and the African continent to life on stage! Dallas Children’s Theater was named one of the Top Five children’s theater companies by Time magazine and is the only one of that group to tour nationally.
