Python and the Qunube Tree is based on an African folktale. When a terrible drought leaves all the animals on the brink of starvation, Python’s Qunube tree is the only food that survives. Surprisingly, little tortoise saves the day with his special talent, breaking the cycle of the drought and freeing the Qunube berries for all the animals to eat. This story is told in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa with a large python puppet, hilarious animal masks and beautiful singing. The children learn about sharing, perseverance, trust, and that we all have talents that need to be discovered. The show is 40 minutes in duration and suitable for kids all ages but most suitable for kids from age 6.
“The children enjoyed the singing and especially how funny the actors acted. The costumes amazed the children.” – Heinrich Jacobs, Recreation & Parks – CoCT
