Product Description

This musical explores the diversity of a rainforest with colourful costumes, lively songs and dances and a rapping script.

The Emerald Crown is the term given to the luscious green canopy that covers the Amazonian rainforest. The tranquillity of the rainforest is shattered by ‘Twentieth Century Highwaymen’, destroying the trees for profit.

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. The final lesson is that, once removed, rainforest treasure becomes worthless.

Witty verses and catchy songs stimulate children to think about the vital preservation process which is needed to save the rainforests. The conservation of rainforests is a world issue of concern to us all. Through the study and performance of this musical, children can actively learn about the vital preservation process, which is needed to save these regions from destruction and over-exploitation.

Debbie Campbell's witty verses and catchy songs are complemented by Tim Stevens' captivating illustrations, which bring the jungle and animal characters alive, making The Emerald Crown an excellent resource for classroom activity as well as performances. Ideal for primary and secondary schools (Key Stages 1-2, ages 7-11).

Musical styles include rock, rap, blues, disco, jazz and ballad.

Cross-curricular themes and topics include Sustainability, Living things, Minibeasts, Animals, Fish, Plants, Trees, Conservation, Habitats, Ecosystems, Rainforests, Farming, Rivers and Amazonian tribes.

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