Babes in the Jungle

£10.00£20.00

Hansel and Gretel are abandoned to fend for themselves in the jungle, but their repentant father, Chopalog the woodcutter, sets out to find them again.

At the same time, Tomtom, a poor village lad, sets out to reclaim the legendary treasure of his ancestors, the Heckawi tribe, who were turned to rocks by the evil Shape-Shifters. He is followed by his loyal girlfriend, Lolly, the fabulously rich kid.

Jolene the Jungle Queen – with the five o’clock shadow, is only too pleased to desert her post as guardian of the celebrities in the “Get me out of here“ camp, to try and save our heroes, but her powers have been drastically diminished since the invasion of the Shape-Shifters. She eventually succeeds, but not before a battle of wills with Slither, Shape-Shifter of the Month, and some horrid cannibalistic capers inside the gingerbread bungalow.

(Suggestions have been made throughout for the inclusion of songs, dances, audience participation and an interval.)
