The Zany Zoo

Full of witty, colourful fun, ‘The Zany Zoo’ is the perfect primary school leavers' show. Excellent music, a great message about appreciating individuality, an array of entertaining cameo parts to include plenty of performers... this musical is ideal for a large cast.

Zack’s Zoo is due to open, but he refuses to open the gates to the public until all the animals have passed their Standard Animal Tests! The animals, meanwhile, are behaving in far from ‘standard’ ways – and some of them are downright wacky!

Joe Public and his friends are tired of waiting for the zoo to open, so they stage a protest. To prove the animals aren’t ready to be seen, Zack lets the ‘Publics’ in to observe the testing process - but Joe and his friends love the quirky animals just as they are and think this zoo is the best ever.  Joe even suggests renaming it ‘The Zany Zoo’ so that people will know what to expect.  Once Zack sees his creatures through their eyes, he stops trying to standardise them.  He even apologises for not appreciating their individuality, and declares: ‘The Zany Zoo is opening right now!’

"Outstanding! Our year 5 & 6 pupils loved performing this show. The story was funny & easy to understand, the songs were brilliant - very catchy & upbeat; a particular favourite was the jazzy song, 'The Veggie Alligator.' The show is easy to stage with plenty of parts for all abilities. We've had a wonderful experience, not to mention great fun, staging the Zany Zoo. Highly recommended!"
