The Jungle Book: Kids Edition

By on in Archive |

Theatre for kids, by kids! The Hilliard Arts Council is gearing up for our special children’s theatre production – The Jungle Book! In this action-packed adaptation of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, precocious Mowgli grows up believing he’s as fierce a wolf as any of the members of his pack. When he discovers he is actually human, he must learn how to reconcile these very different identities and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world from which he was born. Baloo, a sloth bear, and Bagheera, a black panther, decide to follow Mowgli in his quest and train him in the Law of the Jungle to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal throughout the jungle. Shere Khan is the nasty rogue tiger who believes no humans deserve the protection of jungle animals and should be killed. Performances: April 8 at 10 am April 8 at 3 pm April 9 at 3 pm At the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center, 5425 Center St, Hilliard, OH 43026 Tickets: Adults $15 Students (Grade 12 and under) $5 Seniors $12 For more information: Email The Hilliard Arts...
