A Rainforest Adventure

This musical explores the diversity of a rainforest with colourful costumes, lively songs and dances and a rapping script. 
Local wildlife are horrified when a gang of developers start slashing and burning their trees. Led by the rapping Toucans, they decide to teach these invaders a lesson– We'll take them on a guided tour and show them sights never seen before. Luring the gang deep into the jungle, they show them amazing sights and meet incredible creatures 'Pyranhas and electric eels, searching for their tasty meals.' Poisonous frogs and army ants scurry around the forest floor, while barmy bats and howler monkeys hang out in the forest canopy. 
When the Jaguar, Queen of the jungle emerges, the gang scoff - 'Whatever's that? It's just a great big pussycat!' But she warns them - Money doesn't grow on trees, but precious treasures such as these.'

The Emerald Crown was commissioned by WWF. It has been featured on TV and performed in venues around the world, including The Royal Albert Hall and London Barbican.

We've just staged it again for our leavers assembly. I think it's  my favourite of all your terrific musicals! Matthew Jennings, Wales
