Owen & Mzee The Musical Summary

Owen & Mzee The Musical is a inspiring true story of two great friends, a baby hippo named Owenand a 130-yr-old giant tortoise named Mzee.

When Owen was stranded after a tsunami, villagers in Kenya worked tirelessly to rescue him. Then, to everyone's amazement, the orphan hippo and the elderly tortoise adopted each other, and they became inseparable, swimming, eating, and playing together. Adorable photos e-mailed from friend to friend quickly made them worldwide celebrities. Here is a joyous reminder that in times of trouble, friendship is stronger than the differences that too often pull us apart.
