Jungle Book: The Next Chapter

Home > Melbourne > Theatre | | Fun for Children
Event: -

The Jungle Book, a set of tales about a young boy raised by wolves in the jungle, was published in 1894. Now, more than one hundred years later, readers can find out what happened to Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and Shere Kahn in this children's stage show.

Jungle Book: The Next Chapter is a musical comedy written by Glenn Elston, whose previous works include adaptations of Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland. In this show, Mowgli the 'man-cub' meets up with his animal friends several years after Mowgli has left the jungle. They discuss previous adventures and Baloo announces that he wants to stay in the city and become a bear star.

The show enjoyed a successful season at the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and maintains the Edinburgh cast. It uses original songs and interactive surprises to tell the story and is appropriate for children of all ages.

Jungle Book: The Next Chapter shows at the Athenaeum Theatre (188 Collins Street, Melbourne) from 9 23 April, excluding Sundays and Good Friday. Tickets are $20.00 for a single or $65.00 for a family of four and can be purchased from Ticketmaster.
