The Peoples Theatre is delighted to announce that they have secured the performance rights to Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids once more, for a limited season from Monday, 13th June – Sunday, 17th July 2022, after the production was closed in March 2020 due to Covid-19.

The Peoples Theatre is thrilled that children in Johannesburg will once again be boogying down to this endearing favourite.

This all-time children’s classic is produced by Jill Girard and Keith Smith, who say; “This ensures that not only will Gauteng audiences be entertained by the magic of Disney’s treatment of Rudyard Kipling’s classic story but also by the wonderful songs (Music Director is Coenraad Rall, set (by Grant Knottenbelt) and choreography (by the world-renowned Sandy Dyer Richardson) will bring all the essential ingredients that will make this a memorable, theatrical experience!”

The Jungle Book is about a young boy named Mowgli and his host of animal friends in the jungle. This story has been a hit with children since it was published in 1893.The Peoples Theatre production of Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids features a delightful cast of professional actors and talented children who will magically weave their way through the jungle capturing the imagination of every child in the audience while allowing them to participate in the action of this much-loved favorite.

Come and meet all of Mowgli’s unforgettable friends in this colourful production, sing and dance along to the instantly recognizable hits, while Mowgli learns valuable life lessons on his journey to the Man Village, where he belongs.

Girard concludes; “Having produced critically-acclaimed children’s theatre for over 30 years, with sold-out successes such as Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Shrek and Seussical to mention but a few, Peoples Theatre was facing imminent closure when a partnership with the Joburg Theatre was created to produce this fabulous show. Together with the generosity of private sponsors, Collett Dawson, Sandy Dyer Richardson, Sean McGrath and Title Card Productions, we are back on stage.”
