Adapted from The Jungle Book novel by Rudyard Kipling, and Disney’s classic animated film, this 30-minute fun musical adventure follows the story of Mowgli who was lost in the jungle as a baby, and has been raised by wolves who love him as one of their own pack.
Now, 10 years later, Shere Kahn, the tiger, decides that Mowgli should no longer stay in the jungle. Bagheera, a panther who is Mowgli’s friend, plans to lead Mowgli out of the jungle to the safety to what the animals call the Man Village. As they journey to the village, they encounter all sorts of creatures of jungle, some friendly, some not, including Kaa the Snake, a herd of elephants led by pachyderm Colonel Hathi, the giant bear Baloo, and a group of monkeys who kidnap Mowgli on the orders of King Louie.
Mowgli’s friends have to come up with a plan to rescue him from King Louie, and scare away Shere Kahn, the tiger, who shows up to finally get rid of Mowgli for once and for all.
Then Mowgli has to make a life-changing choice: does he stay in the jungle with his animal friends, or go to the Man Village and begin a new life? Join us for this theatrical adventure! You’ll meet beloved Jungle Book characters and enjoy familiar songs from the movie.
