Dallas Children's Theatre on Tour presents Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters - An African Tale, based on the book by John Steptoe.

Combining authentic African drumming, powerful and majestic choreography and thrilling original music, the splendor of Zimbabwe and energy of the African land bursts onto stage in this Caldecott Award winning Cinderella tale!
