This authentic, heart-warming, multicultural, African puppet performance is a valuable and fun social studies, and performing and visual art experience. “ It takes a village to raise a child.” Raised in a loving village, Nomsa is the beautiful young Zulu girl who is encouraged by her mother to listen to the song of her heart. African artifacts, paintings, African fabrics and percussion add a multicultural dimension to this laughter-filled puppet romp. 32 puppets encourage interactive participation which develops performance and language skills. Included in SONG OF LOVE is a learning experience about the elements of playwriting, creative impromptu dialogue and effective performance. The story focuses on respect, love, helpfulness and choices that contribute to the wholesome community and family life. The show is adjusted for age appropriateness. We all applaud and laugh together as students and teachers participate in this fun-filled, dynamic show. Visit Lynn's Facebook
