THE JUNGLE BOOK – Tix on sale 2 Feb!

“A brave heart is your best weapon …”

Hunter Drama is proud to present the classic adventure story, The Jungle Book, at the Civic Playhouse 18 – 27 April with tickets on sale from Friday 2 February. The Jungle Book is a firm favourite for all ages and the perfect school holiday event for all the family.

In this action packed adaptation by Monica Flory, which is faithful to the original Rudyard Kipling story, there’s an added emotional depth at its heart – one that explores Mowgli’s quest for identity and makes this a theatrical experience not to miss.

Mowgli grows up believing he’s as fierce as a wolf and a member of the wolf pack. When he learns he is actually a human, he must discover how to reconcile these very different identities, and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world. What will he choose? And will he be trained in the Law of the Jungle in time to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal of all?

Directed by Tim Turner and with lighting design by Jacob Harwood, it stars Hunter Drama students and runs for 75 minutes. A high energy, colourful and exciting adventure story guaranteed to keep kids aged 5 to 95 engaged and entertained right to the enthralling end.
