Talespinner will return to the stage once state and federal officials have given the all clear to gather with others and TCT has solidified a health and safety plan for our guests and artists. Keeping everyone safe is our top priority. Thank you for your support!

The King of the Animals (a Tale of Cameroon)

When Anansi the spider comes to town and announces that he is going to be the new ruler, the rightful King of the Animals must be clever in showing him the error of his ways and retaining his own crown.

We are sorry, but due to the growing health crisis around COVID-19, all performances of King of the Animals are canceled. If you have already purchased tickets, you'll hear from us by the end of the week. Check back for some digital content around the show. And please consider contributing to our Virtual Box Office fundraiser to help make sure we are still here on the other side of this.

TCT's Exceptional Inclusion program now applies to every mainstage (and touring) production! Last year, TCT introduced its Exceptional Inclusion program, stand-alone productions that worked with and supported kids and families in the Cleveland area living with disabilities. This year the program will be incorporated into every mainstage show; each production will provide support for sensory needs such as lower lighting, audience interaction, and sight and sound experiences as well as providing pre-curtain touch tours, sensory kits, personnel to assist audience members, and comfortable areas in the facility where kids and families can step away if they need to.
