Oh what a tangled web we’ll weave!
There are many accounts told of Anansi, the African trickster who often shows up as a spider and is considered to be the spirit who possesses the knowledge of all stories. Join us as we explore the folklore of this fantastic character, and watch the many ways we spin his sagas.
The cast includes James Brunt, Tresha Farris, Hossein Forouzandeh, Ronald McQueen, Rav’n Moon, Brihtney O’Brien, Artie Thompson and Lisa Young.
Through the process of storytelling we can find commonality and community. The BiTSY Stage provides high quality, FREE theatrical productions for the whole family. Our adaptations of international folktales celebrate the things we all have in common while exploring the differences that make our world so rich.
“Anansi: The Itsy BiTSY Spider Stories" is the seventh adaptation of international folktales presented by The Bitsy Stage. The first, "The Stonemason's Wish: A Chinese Tale," opened in March of 2016.
