One of literature's most enduring classics is brought vividly to the stage in this exciting adventure of Mowgli, the Indian boy, raised by caring wolves, befriended by Bagheera the Panther and Baloo the Bear, and threatened by Shere Kahn, the evil tiger. Also present are an array of other jungle creatures who inhabit this action-filled play.
Interspersed with the Mowgli tale is the equally intriguing story of a young Rudyard Kipling, who is sent from his home in Bombay to a British boarding school where he encounters his own "jungle," including people - both good and otherwise - who parallel many of the animal characters he created. Filled with excitement and humor, the play highlights the struggle of good versus evil, the worth of friendship, and the importance of loyalty and other values required for surviving the "law of the Jungle."
The Jungle Book is showing at Weatherford’s Theatre Off The Square, located at 114 N. Denton Hwy. Shows run from July 15 to July 24. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

Written by Joseph Robinette based on the Mowgli Stories of Rudyard Kipling. Directed by Delona Grace.
