Join Bay Area Children’s Theatre for a family favorite book brought to life!
All the animals in the jungle know their own special dance, but Gerald the Giraffe can’t seem to move without a clumsy step. But with the help of a wise cricket, he finds his own song, and dances to the beat of his own drum! In this stage adaptation of the beloved children’s book, filled with African rhythm and lots of dancing, Gerald learns that his differences are what make him special.
The performance runs 50 minutes
Recommended all ages
Location: San Francisco + Berkeley
When: Saturdays & Sundays at 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM
Dates: April 14 – June 18
