The Chimpanzees of Happytown Year Long Tour Begins
Music in the Round's latest commissioned piece for families and schools is THE CHIMPANZEES OF HAPPYTOWN. Music by MitR's Children's Composer in Residence PAUL RISSMANN. Book by GILES ANDREAE and GUY PARKER-REES. The much-loved story of Chutney the Chimp is brought to life through brilliant live music, captivatingly presented by narrator Polly Ives and Ensemble 360. It’s tremendous fun for little ones, is the perfect way to learn new songs and benefits their development too.
You will be able to join in the adventure this year as Polly and Ensemble 360 take the concert on tour across the UK. The tour begins in Sheffield with two sold-out school concerts in the Crucible Theatre's Main House. It will then visit a number of venues including Rotherham, Doncaster, Carlisle, Portsmouth and many more!
