"Listen...Toko-Toko-Tokoloshe...he hides in the shadows of the stream and dances where the waters gleam"

One day when Thandi and her loyal dog Voetsek are fishing, they get tangled up with the Tokoloshe --a mischievous Zulu folklore inspired river-spirit --and Thandi's life takes some unexpected twists and turns. With the 'help' of the Tokoloshe, Thandi weaves around a wretched grandmother, unwanted suitor, and a lost father to ultimately find friendship and happiness where she least expected.

Come see the young actors of Underground Players weave this magical tale of trickery, laughter and true friendship. Featuring puppetry designed by Faye Dupras, and music/sound designed by Kera Washington of Zili Misik.
