a musical adventure story by Dennis A Westgate

          In this adaptation of THE JUNGLE BOOK, I’ve kept the names of the main characters in the story and added a few new characters.  This musical version has new and original songs, not the Disney numbers we are all acquainted with.

           This new version is very easy to stage,using two mobiles and two painted flats. This production has been composed specifically for the middle to senior schools or colleges.

             NOTE: In my modern adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling original story, there is one small proviso:-  Following 'Animal Rights' guidelines,

 SHERE KHAN is not killed, but ends his days in a local zoo.

SYNOPSIS

   My story revolves around a baby boy and his parents, who are being hunted by Shere Khan a man-eating tiger. In order to save their child, they hide him in one of the many bat caves.

    

    The baby's crying is heard by Akela of the Seeonee wolf pack and is adopted by Raksha, his female partner and given the name Mowgli (little frog) where he's integrated into jungle life and learns 'Jungle Talk' with help and guidance from his best two friends, Baloo the bear and Bagheera a black panther.

The play begins from the moment when the boy has reached manhood and has to leave the protection of his family and friends who are in fear of his survival as Mowgli decides to seek out and capture Khan.
