This engaging interactive play is geared for our younger theater goers. It will include audience participation, movement and puppetry. A young man-cub named Mowgli has been abandoned. A panther named Bagheera takes pity on the baby and takes him to a pack of wolves to be raised. The wolf pack raises Mowgli and accepts him as their own. Ten years pass and Mowgli becomes a wiry young boy. Bagheera and the wolf pack soon worry that their predator, Shere Kahn, the tiger has a hatred for man and that they need to protect Mowgli from him. So Bagheera who has become a teacher to the man-cub volunteers to take him to the man-village for protection. Along the way they face dangers such as the hypnotizing eyes of Kaa, a hungry python and more friendly creatures like Baloo, a lovable bear who helps Mowgli along the way.
