Remember the animated musical about Mowgli, the young boy raised by wolves in the jungle? It was a childhood favorite, including the popular song “The Bare Necessities.”
This weekend—Friday and Saturday, August 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 14 at 2 p.m.—you and your children and grandchildren can relive this wonderful story of The Jungle Book in a staged children’s presentation.
This one-act musical has been carefully adapted from the original, keeping it family friendly, and making it sparkle with energetic music and colorful characters. When the villain tiger Shere Khan decides that the young boy is no longer welcome in the jungle, Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear try to escort Mowgli safely to the “man village.” But they encounter some interesting characters along the way.
The Jungle Book Kids includes an age-old moral to the story and, of course, a happy ending. Don’t miss your opportunity to watch the young stars shine at South Baldwin Community Theater in Gulf Shores, 2022 W. Second St., across from Bodenhamer Center and the Erie Meyer Civic Center. Adult tickets are $10, student tickets $5, and ages 2 and under are admitted free. Call 968-6721 for further information.
