ABOUT
Marin Theatre Company presents a hip-hop musical for young audiences (ages 5-11) about African folklore. Ana loves stories and, when she playacts them with her friends, she wants the other kids to follow the stories just the way they’re written. But, when Ana gets caught up in the legend of Anasi the tricky spider, she discovers that sometimes you have to write your own story. Join her for a journey through a world of magic and mystery that is accompanied by music, beatboxing and rhymes.
