The Jungle Book Through Nov. 2.

November 2, 2018


Free – $30
The Jungle Book Cincinnati performances

Playhouse in the Park presents The Jungle Book Cincinnati performances in it’s Off the Hill series.

 

Bring your children to the jungle this fall to watch Mowgli the man-cub come face-to-face with sneaky monkeys, noisy vultures and more when Playhouse in the Park brings The Jungle Book Cincinnati performances in its Off the Hill series.

 

Mowgli is rambunctious, curious and silly in this new adaptation of the beloved Rudyard Kipling story. Lost in the wilds of the Indian jungle, Mowgli is adopted by Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and all the beasts who call the mysterious wilderness home. This fast-paced retelling keeps you perched on the edge of your seat as young Mowgli comes face-to-face with sneaky monkeys, noisy vultures and his mortal enemy: the tiger, Shere Khan.

About The Jungle Book

The new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved story features a rambunctious, curious and silly Mowgli who is lost in the wilds of the jungle, where he is adopted by Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and all the beasts who call the mysterious wilderness home.

 

Greg Banks’ script plays on the nostalgia of Kipling’s tales while providing a modern, fast-paced retelling for audiences. A cast of only five actors will fill 20 scripted roles in this adventurous production.

 

The Jungle Book utilizes an exciting set from Kenton Brett and costume designs by Melanie Mortimore to transport viewers to the wondrous wilderness of the Indian jungle that Mowgli and his animal friends call home.

 

The set provides a perfect background to introduce, or reintroduce for some, Mowgli and his jungle-dwelling friends. Protected and guided by Baloo, Bagheera and Mother and Father Wolf, Mowgli discovers challenges and dangers that test his strength and friendships. Yet he finds that when he is in peril, the ones who truly care for him are never that far behind.
