Kidoons' new Jungle Book premieres to raves in Sarasota!
"JOYOUS! A new version of the familiar story that should delight children and the adults lucky enough to join them." (Sarasota Herald-Tribune)
"Like stepping inside a beautifully illustrated children’s storybook. It’s a magical experience!" (The Observer)
"Jungle Book is a great place to introduce young people to the wonderful world of theatrical storytelling." (Talkin' Broadway)
"The cast and crew bring a classic to life with modern-day techniques and takes." (Sarasota Magazine)
“A MUST SEE, especially for multi-generational families where this can open the door for dialogue on bullying, respect, temperance and so much more.” (Broadway World)
On June 9, 2018, Kidoons' new family production of Jungle Book saw its world premiere at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Florida, following the success of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea in 2017. We're so proud of our creative team, and delighted at the standing ovations and great reviews. This truly is a terrific show for families, as dozens of happy kids line up in the lobby after every performance to take pictures with our cast (and Kaa the Python).
If you're a presenter/producer, Jungle Book has been designed for efficient touring and technical set-up, and is perfect for a family series or for school shows. It's a visually stunning retelling of Kipling's classic stories, combining high-tech immersive multimedia, low-tech shadow puppetry, and great performances.
Playing NOW THROUGH JUNE 24 2018 at Asolo Repertory Theatre.
Playing July 17-29 2018 at Pasadena Playhouse.
