Happy Town - Schools

Paul Rissmann - Presenter
Graham Abbott - Conductor

Narrated by the charismatic Paul Rissmann, hear the story of Chutney the Chimpanzee as he transforms Drabsville into a town of colour and joy.


Based on the story by Giles Andreae, The Chimpanzees of Happy Town will be brought to life by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra as they perform Rissmann’s vibrant score in its Australian Premiere.


Delightful images by illustrator Guy Parker Rees will be projected above the orchestra, and children are invited to perform with the orchestra through participatory songs and actions.


With important messages of how love and care creates family and community, this fun-filled story is sure to put a smile on the faces of young and old alike.


Participation packs provided to all attending schools.
