Description: 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 by Biles Andreae, with puppets, African rhythm, and lots of dancing, Gerald learns that his differences are what make him special.
