    Handa's Surprise

    Travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo in the next village.  Handa is taking 7 delicious fruits as a surprise, but 7 different animals have 7 very different ideas. Could you resist the sweet-smelling guava?  How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passion fruit?

    A blend of physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create an intimate, magical production with audience participation.  Come and share in the magical tangerine surprise!
