Sunny and Licorice is a 30-minute, interactive, non-verbal show created by Arts on the Horizon specifically for children ages 2 – 5. It includes three professional adult actors and a musician. Sunny, the zoo’s sole orangutan, is delighted to get a new roommate, but things don’t go smoothly when Licorice first arrives. Sunny likes to be loud, but Licorice prefers to read the newspaper. And Licorice likes to keep things tidy, but Sunny keeps making a mess! When the zookeeper leaves behind a radio, a curious thing happens -- toes start tapping and arms start swinging. Could music bring this “odd couple” together? Featuring live music and a special tap finale inspired by movie musicals of the 1930s & 40s!
