JUNGLE BOOK, THE MUSICAL
RETURNS TO KING STREET THEATRE FOR THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
Jungle Book – The Musical is back after a successful season in 2014. WARNING – this is not the Disney version.
Based on the beloved stories by Rudyard Kipling, Artistic Director/Intendant of KING STREET THEATRE, Markus Weber and Michael Summ’s production of Jungle Book – The Musical will delight audiences once again during the January School holidays.
“Markus Weber and Michael Summ’s version of The Jungle Book is a beautifully-written musical derived from Rudyard Kipling’s famed writings.” Suzy Wrong, Suzy Goes See, April 2014
“Where did this beautiful adaptation of The Jungle Book come from? Full of great tunes, superb characterisation and laughs” David Spicer, Stage Whispers, April 2014
The classic tale of Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and their arch nemesis Shere Khan is set to a soundtrack from Summ of Acoustic Media in Germany, which Suzy Wrong describes as “delightfully catchy and pleasantly melodic.”
Does Mowgli survive in the jungle? Can Mowgli fight off the taunts of Shere Khan, the Bengal tiger who wants him out, while trying to escape the hypnotic powers of Kaa, the python? This is survivor Newtown style, with a little help from some unlikely friends. There is bubbly Baloo, the bear who teaches Mowgli lessons in life and Bagheera, the Black Panther who shares with him the wisdoms of the jungle world. But why does King Louie, the king of the monkeys want him? Will Mowgli be on the menu for all to feast on him in Jungle Book – The Musical? The cast includes Kodie Amos, Maria de Marco, Mark Power, Tiffany Joy , Martin Charles Badway, and introducing Alfie Salvato as Mowgli, the man cub.
“This combined with a meet and greet in the foyer afterwards made it excellent school holiday entertainment.” David Spicer, Stage Whispers, April 2014
