In their educational and entertaining show, the African natives use familiar themes from “The Lion King” to explain the language, animals and interesting facts about their homeland. With feats of balance, endurance and strength, the acrobats illustrate rituals and ceremonies used by Kenyan tribes. The show also includes traditional dances from South Africa.
In the event that tickets remain for these performances, Leach Theatre will also offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club.” The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold one hour before each event for $10 each.
