About Anna Hibiscus' Song

An adventure as bright and vibrant as the African sun

‘Bursting with happiness’ The Stage

This is the story of a young girl named Anna Hibiscus. Anna lives in amazing Africa. Ibadan, Nigeria to be exact.

Anna is so filled with happiness that she feels like she might float away. And the more she talks to her family about it, the more her happiness grows! There’s only one thing to do... sing!

Presented by Utopia Theatre and Sheffield Theatres, Atinuke’s much loved children’s book is brought to life in this uplifting show through music, dance, puppetry and traditional African storytelling.
