After 6 successful runs last year, Ghana’s epic musical theatre, ‘Wogbe Jeke: The Birth Of A Nation’, is set to return, revised and revitalized.

Wogbe Jeke is an exhilarating experience of music, dance and drama, that re-enacts the journey and settlement of major ethnic groups into the current borders of the country.

It is a colourful narrative of Ghana’s pre-colonial history featuring the stories of Kings, Queens and Legends; a celebration of the nation’s culture and heritage.

Wogbe Jeke stages at the Amphitheatre of the University of Ghana (behind Commonwealth Hall on 31st March, 1st and 2nd April at 7:30pm each night.

The Key Soap sponsored production is created by Chief Moomen, one of Ghana’s outstanding young poets and playwrights, and directed by BBC award winning playwright Anima Misa Amoah and Abdul Karim Hakib, a lecturer at the School Of Performing Arts, UG.

The story continues in July at the National Theatre with a riveting play on Ghana’s independence struggle titled Wogbe Jeke: The Tale OF Two Men.

The production is powered by Bambu Centre in collaboration with Citi FM.
