The Strollers community theater continues its 88th season with a show for children of all ages, How the World Got Wisdom. The production will be performed for two weekends in late January/early February at The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood, NJ.
A multi-ethnic, multi-generational celebration, How the World Got Wisdom depicts several folktales from the rich treasure of African legend. These fables are enacted through dance, music, stories, and scenes. While showing the colorful wealth of African history and folklore, the fables also make their morals relevant to contemporary life.
How the World Got Wisdom is directed by Amanda Feliciano and Dena Daniel. The show will be presented for two weekends at The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood. Evening performances will take place on Friday, January 31 and February 7 at 7:00 p.m. Matinee performances will be held on Saturday, February 1 and 8, and Sunday, February 2 and 9. Each day will feature two performances, at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 each. Visit www.thestrollers.org for information and to purchase tickets, or call 973-761-8453 to reserve tickets.
