***** ‘Just don’t go expecting Disney. It’s better than that! And it’s live and roaring its theatrical head off! Rooooooaaaar!’ Phil Lowe, East Midlands Theatre

Lost and alone in the jungle, how will the infant Mowgli survive in this terrifying but wonderful new world? And how will he escape the claws of the vengeful tiger, Shere Khan?

Only the help and guidance of Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and Akela the wolf can protect him from the mischievous monkeys, the powerful python Kaa, and ultimately from himself.

Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of the Indian jungle, animals, humans, friendship, love and the natural laws that bind us all together, are brilliantly brought to the stage in BB Cooper’s musical, written by Toby Hulse. A spell-binding, edge-of-your-seat adventure of song, dance, music and laughter that evokes the brilliance of Kipling’s original stories.
