Gerald the Giraffe is tall, long and slim; perfect for reaching the tallest shoots on the tallest trees, not so good for dancing.

Based on the bestselling book by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees
Director Julia Thomas
Composer Tasha Taylor Johnson
Gerald the Giraffe is tall, long and slim; perfect for reaching the tallest shoots on the tallest trees, not so good for dancing. The annual Jungle Dance is just around the corner and Gerald prepares to take his first tentative steps onto the dancefloor to join the waltzing warthogs, rock’n’rolling rhinos and cha-cha cha-ing chimps. But Gerald – the silly clot – everyone knows Giraffes Can’t Dance!
A much-loved book for over 20 years, Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees’ African jungle bursts to life with puppetry, songs, and a company of five playing warthogs, lions, rhinos, chimps and, of course, the violin-playing cricket.
Perfect for audiences aged 2+ Giraffes Can’t Dance encourages everyone to dance to their own rhythm and to, just be, a little more Gerald.
Tickets: £10, £14, £18, £25
