“Jungle Book” is a Wild, Multi-Media Adaptation of Well-Loved Stories

Written and directed by Craig Francis and Rick Miller, “Jungle Book” reimagines this childhood classic with a contemporary setting. In a jaw-dropping multi-media twist, Mowgli is instead a 25-year-old architect in New York City, and the jungle book is his old childhood journal. Upon receiving a text from his sister Maya that says “Happy birthday, Wolf Boy!”, he re-lives the stories of his youth.

When toddler Mowgli and his family are attacked by the tiger, Shere Khan, he gets lost in the jungle. Luckily, Mowgli is then rescued and adopted by Akela and Raksha, two wolves who raise him in their pack. He also learns about the laws of the jungle from Baloo and Bagheera, a bear and a panther. However, when Shere Khan turns the wolf pack against Mowgli, the young boy must leave the jungle and reconnect with his human mother and sister in town.

As the town hunter Buldeo threatens to harm his family, Mowgli requires help from both his animal and human families to vanquish his foe. In the process, he learns that we need to “let in the jungle”, connecting the human world with the natural world to keep everything in balance.

Don’t miss this exciting production of “Jungle Book”, presented by Brampton on Stage at The Rose. The play incorporates poetry from the original novel to transport audiences through time using video and interactive technology. According to co-creator and director Craig Francis. “Jungle Book combines immersive multi-media and sound with shadow puppetry and live performances to create an experience that you just have to see live.”
