Nottingham Lakeside Arts and New Street Theatre present BB Cooper’s musical The Jungle Book, written by Toby Hulse.
Rudyard Kipling's classic tales of the Indian jungle, animals, humans, friendship, love and the natural laws that bind us all together are brought to life in a spell-binding adventure of song, dance, music and laughter, perfect for everyone aged 6+.
Alone in the jungle, how will Mowgli survive in this terrifying but wonderful new world? Will he be able to outwit the mischievous monkeys and the powerful python Kaa, whilst escaping from the claws of the vengeful tiger Shere Khan?
In this funny and heart-warming story, Mowgli is taken on a journey of self-discovery by his friends Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther, and Akela the wolf, where he must learn the laws of the jungle and uncover his true identity.
