Jonesborough Repertory Theatre presents “The Jungle Book”

Jonesborough Repertory Theatre invites you to its production of The Jungle Book March 21 through 30 at the theatre located at 125 ½ West Main Street in Jonesborough.

A complicated life at a boarding school in London is the inspiration behind Rudyard Kipling’s famous story, The Jungle Book.

Join the fun as Jonesborough Repertory Theatre presents this creative classic featuring dancing monkeys, bullying schoolmates, loyal (and not so loyal) jungle animals and of course, Mowgli the wolf-boy.

You’re probably familiar with most of the characters in this version of The Jungle Book, but you’ll also enjoy meeting new ones that are in Kipling’s original story.

The cast of 30 adults and children include Jacob Clemons as Mowgli, Will Bishop as Shere Khan the tiger, Alex Vanburen as Tabaqui the jackal, Jason Richards as Baloo the bear, Michael D’Avella as Bagheera the panther and Adam Honeycutt as Akela the wolf.

The Jungle Book, based on the Mowgli Stories by Rudyard Kipling and adapted for the stage by Joseph Robinette, is the fifth production of the Theatre’s 2013-2014 season and is directed by Pam Johnson, assisted by Lindy Ley.

Shows will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. School shows will be on Monday, March 24, at 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 general admission, $13 for students and seniors.

To purchase tickets, call the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010 or visit jonesboroughtheatre.com.
