RUKA - Book, Music & Lyrics by Tony Small.  Additional Lyrics on Bee Bop and Lady by Keni Fine; Choreography by Oscar Hawkins.  Opening RUKA prelude by Szymon Markiewicz; Directed by Elsa Bass.  This condensed matinee version of RUKA (that means to fly in Kiswahili) is another example of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering & Math) & Edutainment programs.  You’ll cherish this timeless fable chronicling the adventures of Lady Amé -- an enchanting orphan’s?chaotic plight to save the world’s most ancient Kingdom that stirs up the whole “Insectian Village.”?Mr. and Mrs. Roaché, Lady’s two archaic yet comic neighbors, and her two animated best friends, Antony?and Criché, take the audience on a heartrending journey through a land seen but unknown to mankind.
