Theatro Muppiloo (new CD)

by Jack Grunsky

Jack's brand new release of children's music is a series of songs based on a musical variety show intended to be performed by young K - 5 students. The storyline is about a theatre stage hand 'Muppiloo', who sweeps the floor after a show and allows his own imagination to unfold on the empty stage. One after the other twelve different groups of children perform the songs or dances in which a variety of themes are addressed. Act one sets the tone with a number of uplifting welcoming songs. Act two shifts to a jungle scene and introduces some lively animal songs and skits. Act three addresses universal themes of tolerance, respect and understanding leading up to the final curtain call.
