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.
