BEAUTIFUL Creatures, in association with Blu Blood, are staging the award-winning children’s stage production, Beautiful Creatures, at the Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace from December 8 to 18.
The musical tells the story of the shy and quiet Imvubu the Happiest Hippo and how he got to be so happy. Join him on his journey of self-discovery as he befriends Mafutha the Elephant, learns dance steps from Tallulah the Tortoise and finds his “inner roar” with the help of Lucas the Lazy Lion.
Beautiful Creatures was created in 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz.
“Using the best session musicians, actors and singers, Beautiful Creatures prides itself on being uniquely South African with a positive global message,” says Choritz.
The last five years has seen them releasing seven albums which have achieved multi-platinum and gold album sales in South Africa, as well as four children’s books (their fifth book Underwater Zoo will be released in 2017) and a series of educational toys.
They have also received two South African Music Award nominations and received the Naledi Award for best children’s production in 2010.
“In a world where parents and children have limited quality time, Beautiful Creature’s mission is to bring families together offering a uniquely South African brand with an educational and positive message,” adds Glass.
The production is directed by director and actress, Gina Shmukler.
“Beautiful Creatures is a must for the whole family. There is a message in every single song. I think the whole world will fall in love with Beautiful Creatures once they see the stage show,” says Jordan.
