International Schools Theater Association
As a Peace Corps volunteer in Liberia, West Africa, I collected African folk tales.  Three of these stories (Spider and the Honey Tree, Black Snake and the Eggs, and The Chief Who Was No Fool) were rewritten by students involved with the ISTA production into the play, "Deep in the Bush, Where People Rarely Ever Go." 

In addition, we made paper maché headgear for the boys and animals.  The girls learned from a Nigerian women how to tie an authentic African-style head scarf.  Then, we took the play to the ISTA festival in Kuala Lumpur and also performed it four times in Manila.
