    Story

    A BRAND NEW MUSICAL FOR CHILDREN

    Can you help Colin the Cockatoo and his AnimAlphabet friends realise their musical dream to perform to children and families at the Edinburgh Festival?

    AnimAlphabet The Musical is a brand new childrens musical with music by Al and Sam of The Hoosiers and story by Mark Hooper and Dean Penn.

    We aren't a big organisation. We're just 4 blokes who are excited at the prospect of creating a new piece of theatre that can entertain and educate children up to the age of 11 and their families.

    We calculate that creating a brand new musical and taking it to Edinburgh will cost in excess of £30-35,000 including the early part of the tour £50-60,000. We plan to self finance most of this with the balance coming from fundraising and events.

    AnimAlphabet is a fun, fast-paced comical journey that will leave our audience smiling with joy and, no doubt, singing the very catchy songs all the way home!

    Colin the Country Cockatoo, an unlikely hero, is tasked with a mission to reunite the AnimAlphabeteers following a disagreement with Metro The Gnome. Aided by Scaley the Snake, Colin must quickly reunite Alligator, Bear, Donkey, Elephant, Frog and Giraffe so The Sorry Song can be sung and order can be restored!

    It would all be so easy... if it wasn’t for that dastardly duck, Calando who attempts to thwart Cockatoo on his mission every step of the way.

    AnimAlphabet is a brand new musical thats a fun, fast paced comical journey that will leave the audience smiling with joy. You'll be singing the catchy songs all day long!

      Great news. Our Edinburgh venue has been confirmed, AnimAlphabet The Musical will be performed daily at 10.30am in the Pleasance King Dome, a 183 seat venue in the heart of the Edinburgh festival. Still a long way to go as a large gap between costs vs donations + funding + ticket sales but we will get there. Thank you for all you support so far x

      On Sun 19th Feb we had out first 2 work in progress shows. We received incredible feedback from the audience of children, parents, education, entertainment and theatre professionals. - It was brilliant, my daughter loved it. She was simultaneously afraid and in love with Calando! - My son loved it! He thought Calando was a brilliant character - Fantastic show. My nearly daughter was glued from start to finish and was dancing and singing away to herself. - Wow - Brilliant - incredible - Excellent Thank you all for your support.
