Based on the immortal short stories of Rudyard Kipling, Just So takes you on a fantastic journey along the banks of Africa's great, grey-green, greasy Limpopo River to meet an amazing collection of strange and wonderful creatures. Set at the beginning of time, the musical introduces the Eldest Magician who has created a world of beasts and birds and fish. Everything was just so, until Pau Amma the Crab began playing with the ocean, causing a flood that threatened the other animals. To stop the crab, the Elephant's Child and his/her sidekick the colourful and entertaining Kolokolo Bird, go on a quest to the Limpopo River and discover many lessons including... How the leopard got his spots... How the rhinoceros got his skin... How curiosity and a hungry crocodile can turn an elephant's small nose into a very large trunk. Set to an eclectic, upbeat score, Kipling's "Just So Stories" are woven with wit and imagination into a song-filled journey through the jungle. And you will be inspired by its underlying message - that one determined individual can make a real difference in this world.Director Adam Stafford.
