The Happiness Box tells the story of three best friends, a lizard, a monkey and a frog, who find a magical box and embark upon a journey through the jungle to discover the secret of happiness. 
This multi-sensory experience will engage your students in many ways...

Look! 
The story was originally written in 1942 by Australian POW David Griffin, and illustrated by fellow POW Leslie Greener, for the children imprisoned in Changi during WWII. This concert is accompanied by Greener's beautiful illustrations from the 1947 edition of book.

Listen! 
Adapted for young audiences by award-winning Australian film and TV composer Bryony Marks (Please Like Me, Barracuda) with music to represent the three main characters and capture the delight of the friends’ adventure.

Sing! 
As part of the concert the Music Count Us In song will be performed to so your children can sing along with a full orchestra! . If you don't know the words already you can access them here: http://musicaustralia.org.au/…/countu…/the-song/2017-program
