Utopia Theatre
Anna Hibiscus’ Song

“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 family about it, the more her happiness grows! There’s only one thing to do…Sing!

Told through music, dance, puppetry and traditional African storytelling, this theatrical adaptation of Atinuke’s much loved children’s book will have you beaming from ear to ear.

Please note, this production is presented by Utopia Theatre.
Programmed by The Montgomery Theatre and Arts Centre as part of Monty Makers.
