Show Description:

Based on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, this thrilling and fun-filled adaptation moves the jungle to an inner-city playground as we follow Mowgli navigating his way through the wilds of childhood.  

Mowgli, the human child, grows up raised by wolves under the guidance of Baloo the bear. The tiger, Sherakhan, wants Mowgli but Bagheera, the lone panther, protects him. Mowgli grows up wild and unconcerned,  believing he’s a wolf; but the tiger works long and hard to poison the wolf pack against him. With rope stolen from the human village, Mowgli meets and destroys Sherakhan, but its use has broken jungle law. Mowgli must choose whether to defy the law or leave the jungle forever.

JUNGALBOOK will run April 16-19 (April 16 & 17 at 7:30pm; April 18 at 4:00pm; April 19 at 2:00pm).  Rehearsal schedules are set on cast availability and are generally two to three evenings during the week and a weekend afternoon.  All cast members are expected for all performances, with no exception as we do not cast understudies.
