The global sensation Africa Umoja is coming to the Rialto Center for the Arts in Downtown Nov. 25-30 as part of its worldwide “20 Years of Freedom and Democracy” tour.  The musical tells the story of South Africa through song, storytelling, dance and drama, performed by an all-South African cast of 32 men and women. Shows will be held at 8 p.m. each night at the Rialto,  80 Forsyth St., and tickets range from $53 – $88, with group ticket pricing available. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Rialto Center’s box office at (404) 413-9849.

“It’s beautifully appropriate to have Africa Umoja come to Atlanta as part of the “20 Years of Freedom and Democracy Tour,” since our city has such a rich civil rights history,” said Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves. “I had the privilege of seeing this remarkable show a year ago, and it truly is a don’t-miss experience. There’s something for everyone. It’s a family-friendly, high-quality performance of music and dance that also offers a history lesson and an inspiring focus towards a bright future.”
