SUGAR LAND, Texas (April 29, 2019) – Inspiration Stage presents Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS this weekend, featuring young actors, ages six to 12.
The jungle will be jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS. Specially adapted from the classic Disney animated film, the musical features a host of colorful characters and your favorite songs from the movie.
Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, a human boy named Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.
Luca Marino, 8, a second grader at Cornerstone Elementary in Telfair, is excited to play Mowgli in the musical. “I am so excited for this great opportunity to be Mowgli in The Jungle Book KIDS,” he says. “This is my 5th iStage show and I love it because it’s so much fun to sing, and dance, and act and all the other kids and directors are so talented!”
