Tree Neighbours

Somewhere in a big tropical forest, there is a beautiful tree. On the tree, there lives a bird, a monkey and a rat. They are, well, not very good neighbours, annoying one another with their weird habits and behaviour.

One day, an illegal logger destroys their tree. Without shelter, the animals are left to fend themselves from trouble during the night. Can the tree neighbours find a new home and learn to set aside their differences to live harmoniously?

Suitable for children aged 5 and above

Suggested audience size: Approximately 100 pax.
