The Gardens at Vaucluse House
10th January - 27th January 2019

Pack the Kids, Pack a Picnic and Come to the Jungle this Summer!

 

A fun-filled, energetic outdoor musical adventure that invites you to join in the action. Baloo and Mowgli meet again several years after Mowgli has left the jungle. Together, through original songs,  Mowgli’s life is brought to life. Witness the exciting escapades growing up in the jungle with Bagheera, Kaa, Shere Khan, the cheeky Monkeys and the Jackal. This is an outdoor theatre show full of surprises and great interactive fun.

 

The Jungle Book, The Next Chapter will keep you returning to the jungle every summer. This production takes place in the gardens of Vaucluse House, so please be sure to pack your sunscreen and a picnic for the entire family!
