"Today we offer you a story of happiness. Of self-discovery. Of song. And of dance!"

This is the story of a young girl named Anna Hibiscus. Anna lives in amazing Africa. Ibadan, Nigeria to be exact.

Anna Hibiscus is so filled with happiness that she feels like she might float away. And the more she talks to her mother and father and grandfather and grandmother and aunties and cousins about it, the more her happiness grows. There's only one thing to do... Sing!

Told through music, dance, puppetry and traditional African storytelling, a theatrical adaptation of Atinuke’s children's book.
