The Bumblesnouts are gentle aliens that visit Earth in a funny old spaceship. But on arrival they are horrified when they are attacked by bullies and sprayed with pesticide! Trigger-happy hunters, lumberjacks and gangsters in their fumey car add to the wanton distruction. In other words, everyone is behaving very badly. So, the Bumblesnouts set about trying to show these humans how to take better care of their planet and their own health and well-being at the same time. The lesson they bring is that Earth is an amazing place and every living thing on it has a right to survive!
A witty script with plenty of solos and choruses, catchy songs and lively dances make this an idea show for pupils aged 5 to 11 in primary schools and youth theatre groups.
