The Jungle Book








The Jungle Book
Alliance Theatre
through March 4, 2018

Adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s classic work, this play is one for children and is running at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center in Decatur, south of the I-20, and easy to get to. While the reconstruction of their home base is under way, the Alliance is hitting the road all around greater Atlanta.

Rosemary Newcott directs the show on a full stage set to look like a jungle. Caleb Baumann plays Mowgli and boy-monkey, and Nathan Horne is the human. Ashley Anderson, Markelle Gay, J. L. Reed and Adrianna Trachell are the four monkeys. And S. Renee Clark provides the musical accompaniment.

The show is for the youngsters and runs about one hour. The issue beneath the scenes is that we need to understand and respect one another regardless of our backgrounds; and that is VERY important in today’s world.

We’ve got only two more week-ends for this one, so you may wish to bring your kids or grand-kids for a pleasant experience. More info at
