Mesner Puppet Theater: "Anansi the Spider & Other Tales"

Mesner Puppet Theater: "Anansi the Spider & Other Tales"

Saturday, April 11, 2020 -
10:30am to 12:00pm
Anansi the Spider has a few lessons to learn!

Mesner Puppet Theater presents a lively telling of four classic folk tales from Africa and the Caribbean. All four humorous stories feature Anansi, a trickster spider who sometimes gets tricked himself! Appropriate for even young children, this free show will be followed by a post-show demonstration, allowing children to see how the puppets are used. The Mesner Puppet Theater’s  mission is to provide innovative storytelling that captures children’s imaginations and inspires communities. Puppet shows highlight the gift of love, the impact of compassion, the result of good behavior, and the art of empathy. Group members consider themselves collaborative cultural ambassadors, telling stories through theater—with puppets—to educate and enhance communities. There is no charge to attend this event.
