The Jungle Book
by Jessica Swale
Music by Joe Stilgoe
based on the stories by Rudyard Kipling
A co-production with Children's Touring Partnership
We are delighted to be creating a vivid new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's family classic for the Royal stage this Christmas. A wild and funny tale of family, belonging and identity, this production is packed with memorable characters, new songs and brilliant storytelling.
Mowgli the man cub battles for survival in this heartwarming coming-of-age story about a boy raised by wolves in the jungle. With the help of his animal friends, including Bagheera the panther, Baloo the bear and Kaa the python, Mowgli outwits the cruel and powerful tiger, Shere Khan, and learns the law of the jungle.
Adapted by the Olivier Award-winning Jessica Swale (Nell Gwynn), and directed by Max Webster (The Lorax, The Old Vic), The Jungle Book received its premiere at Royal & Derngate before a major national tour. It promises the perfect festive entertainment for all ages.
