The beloved children’s book Giraffes Can’t Dance comes to life on stage in this new musical. All the animals in the jungle know their own special dance, but Gerald the Giraffe can’t seem to move without a clumsy step. With the help of a wise cricket, he finds his own song, and dances to the beat of his own drum! Through the magic of puppets, African rhythms, and lots of dancing, Gerald learns that his differences are what make him special.
