A celebration of African folk tales


Sahara Zoo is an exciting collection of folk tales from the African continent presented in a story-telling theatre style. The show features many animals in stories of ageless truths, from conceited iguana to king lion, from a timid frog to a not so clever elephant.

Children from the audience join the professional cast on stage and perform with the puppets made by the company.

The creation of this show was made possible by a grant from the Greater Jackson Arts Council.
