A Mini-Musical based on Aesop’s Fable "The Lion and the Mouse" for Unison and 2-Part Voices by Andy Beck and Brian Fisher.
Join Tumbili the monkey, Tembo the elephant, Kiboko the hippo, Twiga the giraffe, and the rest of the jungle gang for a very special African adventure. A group of storytellers narrates the story of Panya, a tiny mouse who uses her charm to escape the claws of Maliki, a ferocious lion. But when Maliki gets caught in the hunter’s net – who do you suppose will be the first to his rescue? Welcome to the Jungle is a story of promises kept and friendships made, told in five simple songs and a stylized script written especially for young performers.
Recommended for grades K-6.
