Jungle Jambo drum show in 2019

Event Details

Jungle Jambo is an exciting new interactive musical stage show for kids, where the audience becomes the stage and integrates fully with the show and storyline.

What makes this show unique is that everyone in the audience (the tribe) is given an African styled hand drum irrespective of the number of people in the audience.

Jungle Jambo is a story about a little monkey named Jambo who takes on the challenge to gather a tribe and teach his music to save the jungle from a railway being built through it. Jambo encounters certain obstacles and the question is will he succeed?

The audience becomes Jambo’s tribe and soon he realizes that together as one he can achieve so much more. The tribe becomes part of Jambo’s journey to stop the railway destroying the jungle. The show carries inspiring themes such as “you can do it, if you believe in yourself. And even more so with support from a tribe; “together as one”. Can you imagine the entire theatre playing music together!

Produced and directed by John Boone from Rhythm Interactive, John has performed interactive drum shows throughout New Zealand since 2003 and has presented at 3 TEDx events. John began performing his interactive drum shows for School 11 years ago and over that time has worked out what resonates with children; kids love interactive shows and learning music in a fun way.

Jungle Jambo is about building tribes and bringing positive change to the world we live in.

This brilliant family entertainment is perfect for kids aged 5 to 12 years old and is on at the Herald Theatre from 16 to 20 July. Bookings are essential.
