Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters ~ Friday, January 27, 2017
A great African king desires a wife. Mufaro sends his pride and joy, his two daughters of very different dispositions, to travel a half day’s journey through a mystical jungle and across a deep river to meet the king. Along the way the two girls encounter a number of mysterious situations that test their courage, kindness and strength of spirit. Combining authentic African drumming, powerful and majestic choreography and thrilling original music, the splendor of Zimbabwe and energy of the African land will burst onto stage in this Caldecott Award winning Cinderella tale!
