It's a new day and a new school for Oliver and even making a new friend, Claire, doesn't help him with the feeling that nothing is as it should be. When Claire agrees to show Oliver home at the end of the day and then stay and play for a while, things still aren't right… and they're about to get much worse. Somehow, they find themselves a lot further away from home than either of them could ever have imagined! How are they ever going to find their way back?
Oh, and did we mention that they were being followed? Eeek!
An engaging musical adventure for our littlest arts lovers, Jungle Bungle is a joyous journey that explores the fear of the unknown, while celebrating friendship, individuality, and imagination.
Complete with COVIDSafe arts and crafts before each show (where children can create their own animals to join them throughout) these April School Holidays join Claire and Oliver at Theatre Works in St Kilda on an exciting safari created to engage the young, and young at heart, in a magical musical adventure!
