Meet Mowgli, the man cub. Baloo the bear thinks he ll make a good student. Shere Khan the tiger thinks he ll make a good meal. Join little lost boy Mowgli in the jungle in a story that has touched the hearts of generations. The Jungle Book transports audiences to a colourful and spectacular land with fire dancers, cheeky monkeys, wolves and awe-inspiring creatures including The Queen of Cobras and Chil the eagle. The fiercest predator of them all, Shere Khan the tiger, has sworn to kill Mowgli. Helped by his loyal friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther, Mowgli sets off on an adventure to discover the secret of man s red flower and fight off his arch enemy, only to find he no longer fits in with jungle or village life. Faithful to Kipling s original beloved story, this beautifully staged musical adaptation will feature brand new songs.Performers Pete Ashmore (Shere Khan/Sergent Major/Monkey), Tony Hasnath (Mowgli/Villager), Gerard McCabe (Baloo/Father Wolf/Villager), Charlotte McCurry (Raksha/Villager/Cobra/Monkey/Chil), Karen Rush (Messua/Akela/Monkey/Wolf), Sioned Saunders (Bagheera).
