ABOUT THE SHOW
To honor Black History Month, The Strollers presents this enchanting ensemble show celebrating African roots and culture. Tales from the rich treasure of African folklore are depicted through dance, music, storytelling, and scenes.
Auditioners should be prepared to tell a fable or folk story of their choice (in animated fashion) or cold read a scene from the show. They may also be asked to sing a simple song and learn a simple dance combo.
Drummers: The music in the show consists of African drums and other percussive instruments. If you would like to showcase your talents, contact us to join the band!
Dancers: Dancers with a knowledge of African dance and movement are encouraged to join the fun. We hope to tap the wealth of local knowledge of African traditions to infuse the production with authenticity and integrity. Contact us to learn more!
