The Youth Theatre of Kenya is proud to present an original musical entitled, “Matumaini“.

Matumaini directly translates to “Hopes” in English. And this is exactly what this story tells. Set against a huge dumpsite within the slums, we follow an array of stories and a band of characters who have been tossed aside and forgotten by society…until the music changes their lives. Watch as our characters battle against drugs, gang violence, poverty and the near-impossible odds as they strive to be something more. Matumaini is a relevant, heartwarming story which aims to highlight the power of the human spirit.

This is based on the lives of many of our Ghetto Classics members and some of them will be taking part in the performance.
