Jungalbook performances will go on April 28 and 30 at 7 p.m. each night. Matinees will go on April 30 and May 1 at 2 p.m. All shows will take place at Assumption High School, located at 2170 Tyler Lane in the Highlands section of Louisville.
Tickets for the show are $8 for each adult, $6 for seniors 60 and over, and $5 for students. All tickets can be purchased by going to the Assumption High School website or by calling the school at 502-271-2505. The show is recommended for those in third grade and up.
Jungalbook brings a different perspective to the classic The Jungle Book, which includes a hybrid of the Disney comic elements with Rudyard Kipling's stories relating to loyalty and adventure. Mowgli grows up in a world where he is raised by wolves, figures out he is a human, and may have to defy jungle law in order to defend against the very tiger that ended his parents' lives.
The production stars Meredith Francis as Mowgli, Tommy Bell as Baloo, Marina Petrovic as Bagheera, and Christopher Bartlett as Sherakhan.
