The show is specially designed for the very young – children aged 1 to 5.
It includes four separate stories (described below), all full of music and interaction. Pedro is supported by fellow performer Portia Mntuyedwa, a vibrant actress with a gift for comedy and a great sympathy with children.
The stories are drawn from The Little Library, a set of story-books created in workshops by some of South Africa’s best writers and teachers. Pedro was the musical director of the project and did the music for the CD and TV recordings of the stories. In 1996 these books received the internationally recognized iBbY award.
Like all Pedro’s shows BABY MONKEY’S BANANAS AND OTHER STORIES features lots of wonderful music. Each of the four stories has an original song with words and music that will have the audience singing along and dancing in their seats. There’s lots of other interaction too, with the children being invited to do actions, make sound pictures, play instruments, and offer ideas.
