The Jungle Book was originally written for a professional company who staged the show with just 6 adults and 6 children. The production ran for 50 performances at The Bryanston Arts Centre and The Gardner Arts Centre in 1995/6. However, companies wanting to use a much larger cast can do so: there is plenty of chorus work for the wolves and the monkeys, and no fewer than 22 speaking parts.
Rudyard Kipling?s classic The Jungle Book has been a children?s favourite for several generations, indeed, the Disney film version is one of their most loved films.
This musical adaptation follows the story of Mowgli who is brought up by the wolves, and is taught the laws of the jungle by his dear friend, Baloo the bear. A particular feature of the show is the audience participation and involvement, but the strong plot is not ignored and the element of danger is never far away: Shere Khan has made a vow that he will kill the man-cub before he grows up and The Chief Monkey threatens to eat Mowgli for breakfast for refusing to explain the mystery of fire to him! Eventually Mowgli is forced to leave the jungle and he goes to live in the village where he meets the woman who abandoned him as a baby. He also discovers how to make fire and decides to return to the jungle so that he can rule over all the animals.
This adaptation was originally written for a professional company who staged the show with just six adults and six children but offers considerable scope for companies wanting to use a much larger cast as there are plenty of opportunities for chorus work with the wolves and the monkeys and if the suggested guidelines for ?doubling? are not followed then there are no fewer than twenty-two speaking parts.
The premiere production ran for 50 performances at The Bryanston Arts Centre and The Gardner Arts Centre (UK).
