A magical collision happens when Charles Darwin, author of the biggest game changer book ever written, The Origin of the Species, arrives on Galapagos Island. Darwin has been travelling the world as the official naturalist on the sailing vessel HMS Beagle, captained by Robert Fitzroy. Along the way, Darwin has made some amazing discoveries. He suspects that he may have evidence on the origin of the human species. But there are pieces missing from the puzzle and time is running out. Charles bangs out his theory of evolution with a tribe of lizards who sing, dance and talk – of course.
Directed by Tracy Harvey with 15 kissing reptiles and a giant tortoise, GALAPAGOS! takes a swipe at Christianity’s nutty theory that God made the world in seven days. Featuring 12 original tunes.
Tracy Harvey has slain audiences with her unforgettable melodies and lyrics in Call Girl, PR!CK the Musical and Out Of The Blue. Well-known from the 80’s and 90’s Comedy Company and Gillies Report, her musical writing talent has matured like a hot tub of goanna oil. 'Australia needs home grown musicals to balance the overblown banality of overseas productions, Tracy Harvey’s PR!CK the Musical deserves a backer and a big theatre. Harvey’s Call Girl was much lauded.' (Stage Whispers).
GALAPAGOS! is a celebration of life, brimming with wit and charm. Harvey’s tune, I Am In You Are In Me, declares that we are all planeteers – our fellow creatures included. Suitable for humans, blue tongues and stumpy tails.
