Concert Performance - T082287113

Inspired by the stories of Rudyard Kipling. At the ‘Time of the Very Beginnings' the land is bustling with beasts, the sky is filled with birds and the ocean is teeming with fish. But there is one small problem: all the animals look the same! The wise 'Eldest Magician' sends them out into the world to find their individuality. Everything is just so until Pau Amma the Crab starts playing with the ocean, causing terrible floods that put the other animals in danger. The brave Elephant's Child embarks on a journey to challenge and overcome Pau Amma, but can she do it alone? This wondrous family musical blends five of Rudyard Kipling's Just So stories to tell a tale of courage, friendship and the power of an individual to make a difference. A spirited semi-staged concert that will take you back to nature this summer, join us for a song-filled journey through the jungle in the relaxed atmosphere of The Watermill gardens.Presented byWatermill Theatre (by arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh Ltd).

Five of Rudyard Kipling's tales weave together into a wonderous tale of personal courage, individuality and friendship. A twenty-five year project that began with a series of inspirational stories, Stiles and Drewe bring us an imaginatively empowering piece of theatre in Just So. 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. "Before the High and Far-Off Times... came the Time of the Very Beginnings" when everything was just so, until Pau Amma the Crab, started playing with the ocean. This caused the lands to flood, disrupting the other animals and putting them in danger. While the rest of the animals accept their sad fate, however, Elephant's Child embarks on a journey to challenge and overcome the disobedient crab. Along the way, he meets other animals and discovers how the mysteries of their phenomenon came to be.Producer Barn Theatre. Music George Stiles. Lyrics Anthony Drewe. Director Kirk Jameson.
