A great musical with rapping puppets and a trombone-playing villain – for everyone from six years of age and parents and grandparents.

Theatre can be great! – Especially when made by a Canadian who calls himself Socalled. He plays the piano, does magic tricks, takes photos, raps, draws comics and composes insanely cool music. Now he’s bringing a big musical to the stage. In the back there is a band, in front there’s puppeteers and off you go: The story is about a few animals from the forest, who are friends. However: the forest has been cut down by humans, the bunny has been shot by the hunter, and only the cunning beaver is still there. His friend, the bear, has gone to town where he has been enslaved and now has to produce trombones in a factory. The factory owner Mr. Embouchure is best not to be tangled with, although he can play the funk on the trombone like no other. The only thing that still brings joy to the bear is to think of Tina. She’s an alien that used to be his girlfriend before she sadly had to return to her planet. Then, suddenly, a spaceship lands in the denuded forest and brings an exciting adventure which eventually reunites the friends. During the journey, the (puppet-) animals rap and sing themselves to the bone. A great musical with rapping puppets and a trombone-playing villain – for everyone from six years of age, including parents and grandparents.
