About This Show

King Kunka Bunka & His Rotten Royal Rascals, written and directed by Mehr Mansuri with music from Lory Lazarus (composer for PBS’ Barney), is a musical-operetta with rap-rhyming flavor. The land of Kunka Bunka, ruled by a kind and benevolent King, proves not so harmonious when there’s a chance his rotten royal rascal children may take over. The king, consumed with worry as he discovers that none of his rotten kids are suited to govern the land, banishes them from the comfortable castle for life. Cast off to work in the “real world” the Prince and Princesses discover a strange and surprisingly warm and fuzzy feeling that frequently follows performing acts of service.

Will it be too late to return to their father to share their newfound secret to happiness? If the audience isn’t careful they may learn that people must overcome their pride to live in a world of peace.
