From the Creator of Tweenies, How Lion became King of Tinga Tinga land is a fun packed adventure for all children aged between 3 and 11 years of age.
The story follows the adventure of the Wise Old Bird ‘Banjoko’ who decides that the land of Tinga Tinga should have a King, and how she sets about finding the suitable Animal worthy to wear the crown of Tinga Tinga land.
On her journey Banjoko meets the Cheeky Monkey ‘Maliki’, a Kind but Goofy Giraffe named ‘Gowon’, a Groovy Zebra called ‘Zalika’ and a very Proud Lion called ‘Lutalo’. Each animal in the show brings a unique character to the stage and a special story and song which the audience is invited to sing.
The journey starts and finishes in a lively manner keeping everyone’s toes a-tapping.
“This show is a perfect example of how an idea can be brilliantly produced to make an authentic and enjoyable children’s show.” THE STAGE
Five performers and two drummers lead kids and their families through a high-octane story full of music, puppetry, dancing, and lots of song and dance to join in with.
“The rhythms of the live drumming, brightly-coloured scenery and Linzi Potter’s costumes, traditional African singing and upbeat movements come together in a marvelous fusion of theatrical experience, which will delight babies, toddlers and adults alike.” THE STAGE
Kids will be encouraged to turn up in costume as their favourite animal, and masks etc will be available for sale on the day.
