Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Singer-songwriter James Durst presents a 1-man musical adventure, rich in humor, song & story to dramatize themes of environmental sustainability, unity in diversity, friendship & peace. The central characters Hue (as in 'color' or 'cry of alarm') Manatee and Flickati Cricket seek the wisdom of renowned change agent Leon Chameleon, only to be invited along on a journey to his ancestral homeland, the Galápagos. Along the way, they overcome numerous perils while meeting and sharing songs with Shining Eagle (Northern Hemisphere shaman of the Imáji Nation), a trio of dolphins, a whale threatened by a whaling ship, Ella Condor (Southern Hemisphere medicine woman of the Todos tribe), and a popular street-corner quintet known as Acapellago. Cameo appearances are made by Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood & Goldilocks to populate Leon's parable explaining how our protagonists differ from the 'two-legged ones' in a 5-part tour de farce, 'Lost in the Kuda Shuda Woods.' Ideally suited for families with older children, as the humor employs wordplay and the music is sophisticated yet accessible. Imagine 'The Lion King' meets 'Candide.'
