JAMBO!

Tales from Africa


Book by ALVIN TEMPLE Music by DAVID SYLVESTER
Directed by LAKETA CASTON-HOSEY
Choreographed by DWIGHT BELL
Musical Direction by MARCUS HANEY

“Jambo, human beings!” Take a trip to Africa, where Lion, Monkey, Elephant and their larger-than-life animal friends share three stories of people and animals who find themselves in sticky situations and use their clever minds to escape. Brimming with African folklore, storytelling, and music, each tale is taken directly from the stories passed down through the folklore of many nations and cultures—including East Africa, Kenya, and the Kalahari Bushmen—and offers important lessons for children of all ages.
