Description

The Dancing Granny is a world premiere for youth and families based on the beloved children’s book by 2017 Newbery Honor recipient Ashley Bryan. Kids and adults will be tapping their feet all over Atlanta as Ananse, the clever spider of African folklore, tries to trick Granny into dancing away from her garden so he can take her vegetables. But his plan backfires when he is drawn into the dance himself! This world premiere play with music is written by Alliance/Kendeda Competition alumnus Jiréh Breon Holder (Too Heavy for Your Pocket) and directed by Alliance Yale Directing Fellow Leora Morris. Presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition Painter and Poet: The Wonderful World of Ashley Bryan, The Dancing Granny is dancing to three convenient locations around Atlanta.

Schedule of Locations:
June 10 through 18: Conant Performing Arts Center at Oglethorpe University
June 24 through July 2: The Galloway School
July 8 through 16: Spelman College
