Giraffes Can't Dance

Gerald the giraffe has a problem. All the other animals seem to know how to dance.
The warthogs can waltz, the rhinos can rock ‘n’ roll, even the chimps can do the
cha-cha! Gerald, with his long neck and skinny legs, thinks he cannot dance. That is,
until he discovers that “sometimes when you’re different, you just need a different song.”

Based on the bestselling picture book, this brand new musical with original songs will transport you and your family to Africa where you will meet a cast of characters guaranteed to make you laugh and think. Most of all, Gerald’s story will remind you that we all can dance when we find music that we love.
