"This high-spirited, hour-long kidsí show by Nambi Kelley is all about our search for origins... Multiple, edifying source stories (Russian, African, Chinese, and Mayan) are exuberantly depicted... and Joe Plummer's songs are instantly infectious"  —Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader


A Native American girl named Shadow feels blue because she knows nothing of her heritage. When she brings her neighbors together to share their friendship and storytelling traditions, Shadow learns to embrace who she is, and to celebrate the beauty of all cultures. Explore a whole world of mythology - including African, Chinese, Mayan and Russian traditions - in this new musical filled with folklore, laughter, and dancing, by award-winning playwright Nambi E. Kelley.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.

A new musical based on world folktales by Nambi E. Kelley, with Xavier Kelley
Music & Lyrics by Joe Plummer
Directed by Ilesa Duncan
