A new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s family classic The Jungle Book comes to life at the Cambridge Arts Theatre from Tuesday 20 to Saturday 24 March.

The colourful new show and musical adventure, by the team behind Goodnight Mister Tom and Michael Morpurgo’s Running Wild, is adapted by the Olivier Award-winning Jessica Swale (Nell Gwynn).

It features live music on stage created by Joe Stilgoe and is directed by Max Webster (The Lorax, The Old Vic).

Loved as a wild and fun 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 heart-warming coming-of-age story about a child 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.

Performances are at 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 7pm. Tickets, £18 for children and £20-30 for adults, are available online.

Running time is two hours 15 minutes (including an interval). The show is suitable for children over the age of six.
