Event Details

Running Time 1 hour
Please note: all patrons, regardless of age, must purchase a ticket to be permitted into the theater for this production.

From the creators of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea comes a new theatrical adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book,” re-imagining the classic stories through modern eyes to transport audiences to the world’s jungles. Using a rich sound-scape and immersive multimedia, JUNGLE BOOK will feature your favorite characters like you’ve never seen before, and will delve deep into the original themes of the story, and our relationship to the animal kingdom.

Des Moines Performing Arts is excited to continue a sensory-friendly initiative with The 2:00 PM performance of JUNGLE BOOK.

Sensory-friendly performances are geared towards those on the autism spectrum, individuals with other sensory sensitivities and their families. These dedicated performances will contain all the joy of a typical theater setting with a few adjustments to help those in attendance feel more comfortable. This will include alterations to light and sound, a variety of seating options, an environment that will encourage movement and breaks when needed, ASL interpretation, and inclusive staff that will welcome guests from the moment they arrive. Families who do not require these accommodations are still welcome to attend.
