David Hubball will be playing Shere Khan and Bagheera in The Jungle Book at Greenwich Theatre in August and September.
When the young Mowgli appears in the jungle, and Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and Akela the wolf surround him to protect him from the attack of the tiger Shere Khan, none of them can possibly anticipate the series of adventures that lies ahead.
Endlessly pursued by the monkeys who want Mowgli to make them human, finding an uneasy alliance with the hypnotic snake Kaa and learning the devastating power of fire from the villages that surround the jungle, Mowgli will ultimately have to choose his place in the world.
The perfect summer treat for all the family, we proudly present the UK premiere of this dynamic adaptation of The Jungle Book, bringing Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale to the stage with thrilling percussion, vibrant puppetry and Kipling’s unforgettable, larger-than-life characters.
The Jungle Book is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
