Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale at Dallas Children's Theater / Rosewood Center for Family Arts
5938 Skillman St.
Dallas, TX 75231
The beautiful Zimbabwe-based Cinderella tale returns to DCT. An African villager named Mufaro has two daughters whom everyone agrees are beautiful. But, they have their differences. Manyara possesses a bad temper and is self-centered (but never in front of Mufaro). Nyasha is kind and considerate to people and to animals. When Mufaro learns that the King is in the process of meeting all of the most worthy and beautiful women in order to choose a wife, he decides that both of his daughters should go. Celebrate goodness, generosity and love with traditional dancing, rhythmic drumming, and glorious African song. Based on the 1988 Caldecott Honor Award book.
