Long before Simba claimed the Prideland, before Tarzan swung on vines, Rudyard Kipling spun fantasies of life deep in the wilds on India. This is the story of Mowgli, a baby lost in the jungle. Sponsored by a panther and adopted by a family of wolves, Mowgli grows up with cobras, jackals, monkeys and bears. But the tiger, Shere Kahn, fears the man-cub and the lessons of the jungle become vital to Mowgli's survival. Travel to Emerald City for the first (and possibly greatest) jungle adventure of all time -- Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Directed by Ernie Nolan, director with Kansas City's Coterie Theater, one of Time Magazine's Top 5 Children's Theatres in the nation, where he just staged the Reale brothers' first new play since Frog & Toad, The Dinosaur Musical. Adapted by the award-winning team Steve Goers and Alyn Cardarelli.
