The Smith Center for the Arts presents Giraffes Can’t Dance – The Musical

Adapted by Gloria Bond Clunie

Music by Elton Bradman

Based on the book GIRAFFES CAN’T DANCE

Written by Giles Andreae and Illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

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.

Age Recommendation: Pre-K – Grade 2

Produced by Wishing Star Productions under license from the Rose Performing Arts Theater in Omaha NE
