The Citizens Theatre alternative to the traditional panto this year is to the exciting tale of the Jungle Book. A truly distinctive and inventive production to celebrate the festive season.
A vibrant jungle-world comes to life in this adventurous tale where fun and friendship are mixed with heart-stopping dangers and surprises, in a fresh new imagining of Kipling’s original stories.
There’s a new friend or foe to discover behind every tree in this jungle adventure for all ages.
Saved from the jaws of Shere Khan the tiger, Mowgli is to be raised by a family of wolves. To survive, he must learn the Laws of the Jungle from Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. A brave little man cub grows into a confident and care-free young boy. But danger is never far away and Shere Khan is hungry for revenge. As Mowgli faces each peril and pitfall, he must decide whether he belongs in the world of men or with the animal kingdom.
