MUFARO'S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS
Sept. 30 at 7 p.m.
John H. Williams Theatre
PRESENTED BY: PAC Trust
When a great African king desires a wife, only the most perfect maidens in the land are invited to meet him. Mufaro's pride and joy, his two daughters of very different dispositions, travel a half-day's journey through a mystical jungle to be presented to the king. Along the way, the two girls encounter a number of extraordinary situations designed to test their kindness, compassion and strength of spirit.
Told with authentic African drumming, colorful staging and powerful choreography, "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters" unmasks the true meaning of beauty and celebrates the mystery and splendor of the African continent.
This Dallas Children's Theater production is based on the Caldecott Award-winning book by John Steptoe. It was adapted for the stage by Karen Abbott, with music and lyrics by S-Ankh Rasa.
