How Lion Became King Of Tinga Tinga Land at Trinity Theatre – 30th & 31st March 2016
How Lion Became King Of Tinga Tinga Land is a show for three to seven year olds at Trinity Theatre. Its writer and director is Iain Lauchlan, the creator of Tweenies. Iain also created Fun Song Factory and presented Finger Mouse.
The story of How Lion Became King Of Tinga Tinga Land is straightforward enough. Banjoko the Toucan flies to Africa to warn all of the animals of danger that threatens their homeland. Deciding a king is needed to ward off danger, a group of jungle animals vie for the job but, when threatened by a pack of hungry hyenas, they realise there is only one animal brave enough to be king, Lutalo the lion.
Every animal has its own story and the musical arrangements that accompany the show provide an authentic African rhythm.
The costumes are designed by Morna Macpherson while the accompanying award winning book by Brian Hill and Matthew Howorth has illustrations by D.W Murray who worked on Cars and Lilo and Stitch for Disney..
