CHILDREN and their parents can delight in the Talawa Theatre Company's new production of Anansi and the Magic Mirrior at the Hackney Empire.

The lively show for all the family opens tonight (Thursday) and brings to life the antics of Anansi, the mischievous little spider-man from African and Caribbean folklore.

The black British theatre company uses storytelling, dance and music as the much-loved character is up to his usual tricks and some more.

Vivid animal characters come to life on stage during the latest adventure in which Anansi (played by Hackney Empire panto stalwart Kat) gets into a spot of bother when he takes a magic mirror from Nana Susu's magic shop.

TV star Tameka Empson, from comedy sketch show Three Non, is bound to have all the family in stitches in her role as Nana Susu.

The show is at the Empire in Mare Street, Hackney, until Saturday, March 7. To book tickets, call the box office on 020 8985 2424 or visit the www.hackneyempire.co.uk website. Tickets cost £7.50-£15.50.
