The Jungle Book opens April 22

The Jungle Book

April 22-May 28, 2017
By Greg Banks
Based on the story by Rudyard Kipling
Directed by Janet Stanford
Best for Ages 4+

Mowgli is a human child brought up in the jungles of India by a family of wolves. The embittered tiger Shere Kahn may be stalking him, but Mowgli is a quick learner. His friends, Baloo the goofy bear, and Bagheera, the savvy Jaguar, teach him how to gain the trust of the four-footed hunters, the birds, and the snakes so that he will never be friendless. He falls into a bad crowd of silly monkeys who lead him astray and play a mean trick on him. How will Mowgli escape from the deep, dark well? And, how will he save himself when Shere Kahn turns the wolf pack against him? Kipling’s timeless classic deals with very timely issues in this lively new version. Mowgli learns to respect his environment and the wisdom of the animals. And, he realizes that, as a grown man, it’s his responsibility to protect them.

Paper Dreams Must Close April 9

Paper Dreams
March 11-April 9, 2017
Written and directed by Claudia Moreso, Mons Dansa Dance Company Barcelona, Spain
with the US remount directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer

In a brand-new collaboration with Mons Dansa Dance Company Barcelona, Spain, we bring to life our first DANCE performance-based show, perfect for ages 1-5 that explores the many facets of creativity. A fun, interactive production that tells the story of two delightful creatures who live inside a wastepaper basket. Can our greatest mistake actually turn out to be the next greatest innovative idea?
