Location: Rose Theatre Kingston

A Rose Original, Curve and Simon Friend present
Based on the book by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

Now every year in Africa they hold the Jungle Dance,
Where every single animal turns up to skip and prance.
And this year when the day arrived, poor Gerald felt so sad,
Because when it came to dancing, he was really very bad…

Gerald the Giraffe longs to go to the great Jungle Dance, but how can he join in when he doesn't know how to tango or two-step? Everyone knows that giraffes can't dance!

But with a little help from a wise and kind cricket, Gerald discovers his rhythm – because sometimes when you’re different, you just need a different song!

Carrying the important and universal message of acceptance and self-belief, the sensitive and nuanced storytelling of Giraffes Can’t Dance is perfect for young children, who will be encouraged to dance to their own tune with Gerald the Giraffe and company of five actors playing warthogs, lions, rhinos chimps and, of course, the violin-playing cricket.


> Tickets available from the Rose Theatre Box Office

Creating vibrant, engaging and inspiring productions.
