The Jumping Giraffe of the Savannah

by Jeffery S. Jenkins

About the Play

Dramedy for young audiences. 10-12 minutes. 6-18 any gender. Suitable for elementary and older performers, and elementary audiences.

The Jumping Giraffe of the Savannah is also available as part of It's Elementary, Too! Twelve Short Plays for Lower Elementary School Actors, a collection that may be produced in any order (and with any plays left out).


Timmon, a hungry young giraffe with a penchant for trouble, wanders far from home in search of breakfast. And trouble is never far away on the African Savannah, where dogs and lions are on the hunt and dangers lurk around every corner. As the search for food takes Timmon farther and farther from safety, the youngster meets a grasshopper who can't jump and a dog who is vision-impaired. Could it be the start of a new friendship, or will they let their differences keep them apart?
