African Folktales with Erik de Waal



It takes a special talent to keep the attention of a roomful of kids on a warm afternoon. Erik de Waal's "African Folktales" gives everyone a chance to be a kid again. There are puppets, but really it's the rhythm of the traditional Afrikaans stories, and de Waal's thrilling delivery, that captures our imaginations. The master storyteller keeps even the giggliest crowd's attention, and subtly teaches lessons  about bullies and sibling rivalry. And the best part is that the proceeds from his shows allows theatre to be brought to underprivileged South African families. If you have kids, give them a chance to connect with some traditional tech-free entertainment. If you don't have kids, come anyway and join in the fun.  —Erin Wallace
