Giraffes Can’t Dance The Musical

March 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts UConn Storrs Connecticut

All the animals in the jungle know their own special dance, but Gerald the Giraffe can’t seem to move without a clumsy step. But with the help of a wise cricket, he finds his own song, and dances to the beat of his own drum! In this stage adaptation of the beloved children’s book, with puppets, African rhythm, and lots of dancing, Gerald learns that his differences are what make him special. Based on the bestselling picture book, this favorite children’s musical with original songs will transport you and your family to Africa where you will meet a cast of characters guaranteed to make you laugh and think. Most of all, Gerald’s story will remind you that we all can dance when we find music that we love.

Adapted by Gloria Bond Clunie; Music by Elton Brandman and Lila Olesziewicz
Based on the book Giraffe’s Can’t Dance, written by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees
Produced by Wishing Star Productions
