Jungle Book, a play by Vera Morris, adapted from the famous stories of Rudyard Kipling and made famous by the Disney movie, will be presented by Second Street Players’ Children’s Dessert Theatre on Friday, Oct. 12, Saturday, Oct. 13, and Sunday Oct. 14 at the Riverfront Theatre, 2 South Walnut Street, Milford, Delaware.

The Friday performance, with the curtain opening at 7 pm, is Second Street’s popular “family affordable” night with no set ticket price. Families are asked to just pay what they can! The Saturday and Sunday performances are at 1 pm with all general admission tickets for $10 and available at the door.

Second Street Players’ Children’s Dessert Theatre series offers live theatre entertainment designed especially for young audiences and families. After each colorful, interactive production, the audience is served free refreshments and given the opportunity to meet with the show’s cast for autographs. Many of the young peoples who come to see the shows enjoy dressing up in costume to be even more part of the fun!

Jungle Book is the incredible tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves. With the help of his friends — the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera and the python Kaa — Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle.

Some of the jungle boy’s adventures are gripping, like the time he encounters the hooded cobra who guards the treasure vault in the Deserted City. Others, like the coconut-tossing monkeys who take him prisoner, are hysterical. But the jungle is also dangerous, for it is the home of Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger who has vowed to destroy Mowgli. With his fawning jackal follower, Shere Khan plots to take control of the jungle. Mowgli must use all his strength and courage to stop Shere Khan before it is too late.

This faithful adaptation will enchant all audiences and have everyone cheering when Mowgli declares, “I am Mowgli, Keeper of the Law and Guardian of the Jungle!”

The cast of more than 25 adults and young people includes Second Street veterans and many new faces. Jungle Book is co-directed by Josh Gross and Sharon Buchanan, with Lauren David assistant directing.

Jungle Book is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowments of the Arts.
