Description: When a great African king desires a wife, only the most perfect maidens in the land are invited to meet him. Mufaro's pride and joy, his two daughters of very different dispositions, travel through a mystical jungle and across a deep river to be presented to the king. Along the way, the two girls encounter a number of mysterious situations that unknowingly test their courage, kindness and strength of spirit.
Combining authentic African drumming, powerful choreography and thrilling original music, the splendor of Zimbabwe and the African continent comes to life on stage! After phenomenally successful tours in the 2008-09 & 2011-12 season that visited over 60 cities, DCT returns once more with this musical adaptation of the Caldecott Award winning Cinderella tale.
