welcome aboard! There is always much to learn.

The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s
The Jungle Book KIDS. Specially adapted from the 33
classic Disney animated film, Disney’s The Jungle
Book KIDS features a host of characters and your
favorite songs from the movie. Banished by the
ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, a human boy named
Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on
the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their
journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa,
a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo,
who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of
the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter
with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli
and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives.
When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally
their fellow animals into battle and restore peace
throughout the jungle. Jungle Book Kids is a great
show for students who love singing, dancing, and
creating characters. It’s also a great opportunity
for anyone who wants to work together to make
something special. Costumes provided, students
will need to provide base layer (details to come).
