Martin Bluff Elementary School

Mississippi Arts Commission Puppet Show


Martin Bluff Elementary is excited to announce that the Puppet Arts Theatre will

present the puppet show Trickster Tales.  Anansi is the trickster spider of Akan

Asante origin. He is physically weak and thwarts his powerful opponents using the

only means available to him, his wit and his cunning. The Akan Asante are based

predominantly in central Ghana and have enjoyed cultural and political

dominance in the region for many centuries.
