On Sunday the 18th of December, Lewes Drama Collective’s Junior Club will be performing a most treasured tale about a young boy finding his way in life with the help of his jungleriffic friends at the Malling Community Centre.
At 11am, our Junior Club will proudly present Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale of ‘The Jungle Book’ in Lewes…
“This exhilarating production ticks all the boxes for families looking for an uplifting treat.”
Adapted by Stuart Paterson, “a master of children’s theatre” (Scotsman), this is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
“A top-class production, a tropical cocktail of intense and comical moments, shaken and stirred with heart-stopping dangers and surprises.”
Mowgli must learn the Laws of the Jungle from Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther to survive the jaws of Shere Khan the tiger. In this tale we see Mowgli, the brave little man cub, grow into a confident and care-free young boy.
However, danger is never far away and Shere Khan is hungry for revenge. As Mowgli faces each challenge, he must decide whether he belongs in the animal kingdom or indeed, the world of men.
“Up against Disney, you have your work cut out to produce a show that’s entertaining, fast-moving and fun in comparison… It’s fun, it’s poignant and it’s entertainment at its very best.”
Bring your family and friends to experience how Stuart Paterson has re-imagined Kipling’s much-loved stories in a vibrant and colourful family adventure that’s full of surprises.
These productions will be presented on stage in Lewes, East Sussex at the recently refurbished multi-purpose town venue, the Malling Community Centre, which is easy to reach via public transport (Southern Railway, Brighton & Hove Buses and other local bus companies) as well as invaluable community transport on routes between Eastbourne, Seaford, Haywards Heath, Newhaven, Tunbridge Wells, Uckfield, Brighton and London.
On behalf of the Lewes Drama Collective, the directors and cast members wish to thank everyone involved, including the invaluable voluntary team members, parents of our talented production participants, the venue and fantastic staff, East Sussex County Council and the Lewes Tourist Information Centre.
