A giant builds a high wall around his beautiful garden to prevent the children from playing in it. However, he is taught a valuable lesson when spring does not return and the garden remains in winter all year round. One morning the unusual sound of a bird-song and the sight of a small, frail child trying to climb a tree remind the Giant how selfish he has been. He knocks down the wall, spring returns and he is happy that his garden is now free for all to enjoy. From the composer of the popular Shake, Ripple and Roll and other works for children, here is an enchanting sung-through musical written for a large cast of young people.
First performed at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford, UK on 12th July 1995
