Family Life Youtheatre

Jungle Book LeadsBased on an imaginative, fun-loving Disney classic, Family Life Youtheatre will present The Jungle Book as a musical adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s novel.

Go on an extraordinary musical adventure with Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves in the jungle. With the help of his friends—Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther, and Kaa the python—Mowgli learns to survive the wild and his enemies by practicing "Jungle Law."

Still, the dangerous man-eating tiger, Shere Khan, hates human beings and won’t rest until young Mowgli is destroyed! With colorful characters and toe-tapping jungle rhythm, the musical includes a number of classic Disney tunes such as "The Bare Necessities" and "I Wanna Be Like You.”

The Jungle Book cast consist of young actors between the ages of 8 and 15, along with a crew of parent volunteers, from Bath, Hornell, Corning, Elmira, and other surrounding communities. Thank you to all the hard working and talented kids and adults who have brought this show together!

Performances will be given on April 29 at 7 p.m., April 30 at 2:30 p.m., and May 1 at 2:30 p.m. Click here for ticket information
