She lives on an island and dances to the wind. Along comes
Anansi the spider to distract her with his flute and steal from
her garden. But as our eight-legged friend soon finds out, no
one can fool the Dancing Granny for long! Three performers and
a myriad of marionettes burst onto the stage with this
captivating trickster tale and other African stories that made
their way through Ghana, Zaire, and Mali to the Caribbean and
U.S. Find out how Brer Rabbit outwits a hungry lion, sing along
with a 12-foot pelican, learn how Anansi first spilled the
wisdom of Africa all over the world, and more! Following its
sold-out engagement last season, the company from Bethlehem,
Pennsylvania, returns with another spectacle of music, dance,
and puppetry magic dubbed “Bethlehem’s Lion King.”
