The Dancing Spider
The Dancing Spider
By Marilyn Osterman and Marilyn Kluge. Based on African folktales.

Cast: 18 to 40m or w, Flexible. The plot, drawn from West African folktales and enhanced by songs based on authentic African rhythms, forms and themes, concerns the trickster-hero Ananse, who spends his time dreaming up ways to get others to do his work and so ends up in some hilarious predicaments. Hugh, menacing Leopard and Lion try to intimidate Ananse, but he outwits them both. The songs may be sung by solo voices or entirely by chorus. Accompaniment may be performed on the piano, but here is a perfect opportunity to capitalize on Carl Orff's musical ideas. Very simple parts for Orff instruments like the xylophone are provided in the book. One ext. set.
