The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and The Children’s Fine Art Series present an original musical adaptation of John Steptoe’s Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale. Every culture has its rendition of the Cinderella story, but this one’s notion of “beauty” is more than skin deep.

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.

Recommended for ages five through adult or grades K through six.
