Expect the unexpected! The Jungle Book like you’ve never seen it before!
This holiday season, escape into the jungles of India with this vibrant reimagining of the legend of the boy raised by wild animals. Mowgli lives by the law of the jungle, where survival depends not only on strength and courage but on wisdom and reliance on the wolf pack for survival. When a confrontation with a dangerous tiger isolates Mowgli, he is forced to confront the truth: is he a man-cub or a human? Caught between two worlds, with the support of his friends, Mowgli must search for his sense of self in a quest to discover where he truly belongs. Experience this timeless fable where a cast of familiar characters come to life through puppetry, stylized props, masks and movement. Delight in this colourful and dynamic adventure that explores the true meaning of family.
Exploring themes of courage, identity, and seeking to understand our place in the world – The Jungle Book’s coming-of-age story is as relevant today as it was when the stories were originally written.
Audience Considerations: Suggested for ages 6+. This production includes theatrical haze and dramatic sound and light effects including strobing of lights. Please be advised that the play also contains representations of violence between animals, and sometimes between animals and humans as well as depictions of colonization by human characters. Viewer discretion and parental guidance is advised.
