Based on the 18th century cautionary tale Vice in its Proper Shape, this brand new macabre musical for adults and children alike draws inspiration from an 18th century cautionary tale. It tells the story of a child who stumbles upon a magical menagerie where naughty children’s souls have been transformed into the animals they most resembled in life. Meanwhile the menagerie’s proprietor, a mysterious man in black, tasks the child to choose one animal to set free. Can the child who never thought about anyone else learn to put others’ needs before their own? A dark and imaginatively comic piece which incorporates innovative puppetry in its storytelling.
Clive Rowe has recorded the demo of the title song “Whatever Happens to Naughty Children”.
