Jungle Book

November 14 - 15, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center



It's time to return to the Jungle! A new musical adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic, Jungle Book, is re-imagined with modern eyes to transport audiences using rich soundscapes, shadow puppetry, and immersive multimedia projections. 

Rudyard Kipling’s original story, written for his daughter, has served as the inspiration for many adaptations on stage and screen. This fresh adaptation explores family, courage and belonging and revisits the beloved characters from the familiar story. The performance provides a rich opportunity to delve into our complicated relationship to the animal kingdom, habitat and the jungle itself.
