This summer, Greenwich Theatre is launching a summer tradition with the opening of their new production of The Jungle Book.
Written by Canadian playwright Tracey Power, this version of the story is much closer to the original novel by Kipling than the Disney animated film.
Set and costumes are designed by regular Greenwich pantomime designer Cleo Pettitt with costume supervision from Sades Robinson.
Movement direction, crucial to a show that brings the animals of the jungle to life on stage, comes courtesy of Sabina Netherclift, herself artistic director of Filament Theatre Company.
Lighting design will be provided by Lizzy Gunby, who has lit acclaimed Greenwich studio productions and now moves up to the main house.
The cast of The Jungle Book includes Joseph Black, Antonia Elson, David Hubball, Serin Ibrahim and Kandaka Moore.
The production runs until August 26.
