About The Show: 

Two folktales from Africa come to life in this vibrant new production. In “Koi and the Kola Nuts,” the youngest son of a tribal chief only receives one small kola nut tree as an inheritance instead of his father's riches. On his travels, he meets a snake, a crocodile, and a colony of ants, all in need of the one thing Koi has: kola nuts. Koi's kindness to the creatures he meets is later rewarded when their help saves his life. Then, the trickster Anansi eats his way into a melon and, finding himself too full to get back out, fools the other animals into believing that the melon itself can talk. Spectacular scenery and skillful storytelling make this a must-see performance. BUY TICKETS HERE!
