7.30 PM at the Lion Theatre
Young Stagers are proud to present The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, adapted by Kathryn Schultz Miller
Now this is the Law of the Jungle –
As old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
But the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
The Law runneth forward and back –
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
And the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
Deep in the heart of the Indian Jungle, Bagheera discovers a Man-Cub. Only the wolves Akela and Raksha may save his life and raise him as their own. However, Shere Khan, the Great Tiger, has targeted the boy. Bagheera the panther teaches the boy all he knows about the Jungle. Baloo the lovable bear befriends Mowgli and saves him from the fearsome grasp of Kaa, the Python, and the wild Monkey-People. But who can save him from Shere Kahn?
A fresh, new re-telling of The Jungle Book – true to the Kipling classic. This exciting and creative new play is fun, fast-paced and a treat for the whole family.
The Jungle Book is performed by special arrangement with ArtReach Children’s Theatre Plays.
