ZAK ZEBRA’S AFRICAN SAFARI


Book by Jenny de Reuck • Music by Nick Choo • Lyrics by Nick Choo,
with contributions by Jenny de Reuck & Skye Pember

The devious Lord Fauntleroy and his bumbling sidekick Japie have an underhanded plan to capture the wise and revered Komati the Crocodile, whose tears are more precious than gold and can bring great power to those who possess them. It’s up to our hero, Zak Zebra, and his friends from the Serengeti to save Komati from these nasty human creatures!
