Maplewood Strollers Presents "How the World Got Wisdom"

In celebration of Black History Month, the Maplewood Strollers community theater continues its 88th season with a show for children of all ages, How the World Got Wisdom. The production will be performed for two weekends in late January/early February at The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood, NJ.

A multi-ethnic, multi-generational celebration, How the World Got Wisdom depicts a collection of folktales mined from the rich treasure of African legend. These fables are enacted through dance, music, stories, and scenes. While portraying the colorful wealth of African history and folklore, the fables also make their morals relevant to contemporary life.

The show will be presented for two weekends at The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood. Evening performances will take place on Friday, January 31 and February 7 at 7:00 p.m. Matinee performances will be held on Saturday, February 1 and 8, and Sunday, February 2 and 9.
