NCT presents Vuyo and the Wolf, Shadow Puppets by Khanyisa Mary-Anne Sigwanda


Discover and explore an African folktale with beautiful characters in this shadow puppetry show. Vuyo's journey is about learning responsibility and honesty through uMkhulu Jacob's guidance. Vuyo has to watch Uncle Jacob’s sheep, but he’s always late! And when he’s supposed to be counting the sheep, he always falls asleep. Uncle Jacob knows Vuyo is a good boy, but when his sheep start to go missing, he knows something must be done.

This one-person retelling of the classic Aesop fable of The Boy Who Cried Wolf features Khanyisa  Mary-Anne Sigwanda who flits between characters with ease. Utilizing physical theatre & shadow puppetry, ‘Vuyo & the Wolf’ will delight youngsters and parents alike and is most suitable for audiences aged 3-7 years. Look forward to loads of singing and dancing and a fun-filled storytelling experience.
