This new play adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s book by Sonali Bhattacharyya features original songs written especially for Chichester Festival Youth Theatre. This beloved tale spins into exciting, pulsating life, with a huge cast of characters from Akela, the leader of the wolf pack to Ikki the spiky porcupine and Mao the strutting peacock.
Once upon a time a little boy finds himself lost in the jungle, in hiding from the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. He finds shelter with a wolf pack who name him ‘Mowgli the Frog’ and raise him like one of their own cubs.
Baloo, the fun-seeking bear, and Bagheera, the serious panther, try to teach him the law of the jungle, but the more Mowgli learns, the more confusing all these rules become.
He’s stolen by the Bandar-log monkeys, but his friends will always rescue him, even when Shere Khan tries to banish him from the jungle forever.
Mowgli’s adventures are far from over…
A coming of age story about the desire for freedom that beats in the heart of every child.
