Date Posted: 17/03/2011

The Birmingham Stage Company’s production of The Jungle Book will embark on a UK tour in April, playing at venues nationwide until November. The return of the family-friendly show in 2011 coincides with the 75th anniversary of the death of The Jungle Book author Rudyard Kipling.

The Jungle Book is the story of Mowgli, a young boy raised in the jungle by a family of wolves. When Shere Khan the tiger swears to kill the child, Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther, agree to take the boy to the man village for his safety. But the jungle holds dangers and surprises for them all and Mowgli’s adventure has just begun.

Spring and summer tour dates include: New Theatre Cardiff (24th to 28th May); Sheffield’s Lyceum Theatre (31st May to 4th June); Buxton Opera House (7th to 11th June); Richmond Theatre (21st to 25th June); Alhambra Theatre, Bradford (5th to 9th July); and the Arts Theatre, Cambridge (14th to 17th July). Further tour dates throughout September to November will be announced in due course, and school groups should contact their preferred venue for booking information.
