The Whale Show: Focusing on whales, this high energy physical theatre show explores the comparisons between whales and humans and lets us in on some of deep secrets of these mysterious creatures.

This fun and interactive show uses song, dance and drama to engage the audience in a lively and interactive storytelling experience. We
look at current threats that trees face in the light of unsustainable development and conclude that we, as custodians of the planet, should work together with nature instead of against her. A Dog's Life: This highly entertaining, interactive and informative show looks at the issues of basic domestic animal welfare and primary health care through the eyes of a
young child. The show looks at the development of these relationships and compares the various attitudes towards domestic animal welfare. With songs, actions, nteresting characters and a life like puppet of a dog, this show has proven to be a hit with all who see it.

It harasses the community until they realize that trash has value and that recycling and a clean environment are of great importance.
