MUFARO’S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS: AN AFRICAN TALE
From the book by John Steptoe
PERFORMANCE FOR MAY 8TH AND 9TH
This Caldecott Medal-winning African tale evokes the Cinderella story, as well as the traditional theme of good triumphing over evil. Both of Mufaro’s daughters are beautiful but one is bad tempered and one is kind. When the king of the land asks the daughters to appear before him so he can choose a queen, the prideful, bad tempered daughter decides to set out in the night so she can get there first. Along the path are many opportunities to show one’s true character. The kind daughter who follows the same path the next day makes different decisions – with different results and a surprising ending!
