Anna Hibiscus’ Song
UK Tour

Adapted for the stage and directed by Utopia Theatre artistic director, Mojisola Kareem from the book Anna Hibiscus’ Song by Atinuke and Lauren Tobia, arranged by permission from Walker Books Ltd.

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

For children aged 3+ and their grown-ups. Read news story.
