This Autumn, escape to the magical world of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book with Markus Weber and Michael Summ's acclaimed production of Jungle Book - The Musical.
Following a successful season in 2016, this popular family production returns to King Street Theatre for the Easter school holidays.
Based on the beloved stories by Rudyard Kipling (rather than the 1967 animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions), this unique production sees the classic tale set to a fabulous soundtrack from Michael Summ of Acoustic Media in Germany. All the memorable characters are brought to life in this vibrant stage production, including Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and their arch nemesis Shere Khan.
Bring the whole family along and re-discover the fable of the abandoned "man cub", raised by wolves in the Indian jungle.
The 2017 cast includes Alfie Salvato as Mowgli, Maria de Marco as Bagheera, Mark Power as Baloo, Mandy Fung as Kaa, Kyle Stephens as Colonel Hathi, Kodie Amos as King Louie and Martin Charles as Shere Khan.
