Homelinks homeschoolers star in Tuishi Pamoja

Harmony among the herds

Homelinks students return to the stage with a musical about safari animals overcoming their differences.

The talented young actors from the Homelinks homeschooling program are returning to the stage with a musical about safari animals overcoming their differences.

Tuishi Pamoja, directed by Allison Girvan and Miriam Mason Martineau, is about a young giraffe, Raffi, and young zebra, Zea appear to want to be friends, despite warnings from their parents. For years their herds have lived side by side, but each group considers the other worthless. When lions attack, Raffi and Zea are separated from their herds, but with the help of some smart meerkats they learn to be friends and return to their herds to “face the music.”

Homeschoolers, ages six to 14, have been working together with great energy and focus to present this musical that is both fun and holds a deeper message and invitation: to look beyond our differences, to reach out and take a chance. Music, movement and humorous dialogues make for an entertaining show. They look forward to sharing with you this delightful story set in the African Savannah.

The show goes Thursday, June 13 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at South Nelson School gymnasium (enter off of Hendryx Street).

Admission is by donation.
