Mole & Gecko: The Show


An interactive rap musical about a Mole and a Gecko starring Simon Mole & Gecko

Mole and Gecko is an interactive rap musical that you (the audience) help create. There are live songs, rap stories, instant poems and a weasel with a serious biscuit problem. Join our heroes as they discover that what they thought they were searching for might be less important than what they find along the way.
