LANE COVE THEATRE COMPANY
IRRESISTIBLE CLASSIC TALE COMES TO LIFE AS MUSICAL
The Jungle Book with youth cast – on Sydney’s North 18 Nov – 3 Dec
The Jungle Book – Rudyard Kipling’s enthralling tale of the child raised by animals – comes to Sydney’s North in irresistible musical form from November 18.
Following up its earlier 2016 season hits, Away and The Last Five Years, Lane Cove Theatre Company presents Kipling’s unforgettable tale that has enthralled and delighted young audiences for generations.
Mowgli, the ‘wolf-cub child’ and friends Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and Kaa the python, transport us to the jungle in a story that has remained a favourite amongst adults and children alike.
Can Mowgli discover the secret of man’s red flower? Can he fight off the terrifying tiger, Shere Khan as he awaits his chance to pounce?
Will he be able to overcome the many dangers of the jungle and live there happily? Or will he leave his wild friends and join the humans in the village?
Faithful to Rudyard Kipling’s original beloved story, this beautiful stage adaptation will enchant adults and children alike.
The production evokes the mystery and majesty of the jungle while awakening the wisdom and magic of Kipling’s powerful and enchanting tale.
Directed by 18-year-old Bedelia Lowrencev, The Jungle Book features a cast of brilliantly talented – mostly young performers (all but four of the 22-strong cast are under the age of 18!) including wonderful newcomer Charlotte Pugh as Mowgli, Madeleine Biddle as Bagheera, Daniel Timmins as Kaa and Holly Boswell as Shere Khan as well as seasoned actors Rod Stewart as Baloo, Jeremy Lowrencev as Akela and Jocelyn Chalmers as Raksha.
Lowrencev says The Jungle Book is a real crowd pleaser and ‘the very definition of family fun’!
“You’ll laugh and cry with Mowgli and her friends as they explore the trials and tribulations of growing up, l
earning about the importance of friends, standing up to bullies; really the bare necessities of life!”
The Jungle Book plays at St Aidan’s Performance Space, Longueville, Fri to Sun, 18 November to 3 December.
