The tales of India come to life in this production of “The Jungle Book,” weekends through Aug. 19 at Puppetworks.
Puppetworks presents a marionette adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved work. Adapted by Nicolas Coppola and Adam Kilgour, this is the tale of Mowgli, a little boy lost in a jungle of India and adopted by a family of wolves. Hunted by Shere Khan — a fierce Bengal tiger — Mowgli is taught the laws of the jungle by his teacher, a brown bear named Baloo.
This production features an original song score, with scenery and costumes based on authentic motifs of India.
