A Rainforest Adventure

The tranquillity of the rainforest is shattered when a gang of developers arrive and start slashing and burning the trees to clear the land for cattle grazing. Terrified local wildlife, led by a rapping Toucan, decide to teach these profiteers a big lesson. With the promise of even greater treasure, they lure them on a perilous journey through the jungle to find the Queen of the Jungle. But the lesson is that, once removed, rainforest treasure becomes worthless.

A fun rhyming script with lots of chorus parts, nine catchy songs and dances and great simple costume ideas make ‘The Emerald Crown’ perfect for 6-11 year olds.

The Emerald Crown was commissioned by WWF. It has been featured on TV and performed in venues around the world, including The Royal Albert Hall and London Barbican.
