Jungle Book

Presented by Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe

A Kidoons and WYRD Production in association with The 20K Collective

Written and Directed by Craig Francis and Rick Miller

Experience this childhood classic reimagined. In this case Mowgli is a 25-year-old architect living in New York City and the jungle book is his old childhood journal.

As a toddler, Mowgli becomes lost in the jungle when a tiger, Shere Khan, attacks his family. He is rescued, and adopted by two wolves. Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther teach Mowgli “The Law of the Jungle” and the trio have a series of adventures while trying to keep Shere Khan away.  Eventually  the young boy is forced out of the jungle, and back into the town. There, he reconnects with his human mother and sister, Messua and Maya.

The town hunter, Buldeo, threatens to harm Mowgli and his family; now there’s a human bully inside the town and a tiger bully outside of it. Mowgli must use the help of his animal and human families to defeat the threats.This story connects the human world with the natural world in order to keep things in balance.

“Jungle Book is A MUST SEE, especially for multi-generational families where this can open the door for dialogue on bullying, respect, temperance and so much more.”- Broadway World (June 2018 Florida review)

“EXCITING... I was taken on a wild adventure ride through an immersive technology and multimedia to the urban jungle of Mowgli’s childhood in the forests of India. I loved every minute of it”- OnStage Blog
