The Jungle Book Kids Stage Show at Marquis Theatre in Northville

A children delighting version of the classic book comes to live Aug. 6-Sept. 23, 2012 at this popular Oakland County theater venue for families

Bring your family to take a peek into life in the jungle and see all of the crazy fun that happens inside! The historic Marquis Theatre in Northville presents a children's stage version of The Jungle Book, Aug. 6-Sept. 23, 2012. The production follows Mowgli, a boy who grows up in the jungle amongst the animals in his search of finding where he belongs.

This children's theater troupe has prepared its own adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's original stories from 1894. It will include some recognizable elements from the popular animated Disney movie. You'll hear the familiar tunes, but with a fresh new spin. There are about 16 people in the cast, and it features performers of a variety of ages, including an adult, as well as kids ages 8-15.

The set includes hand-painted backdrops and set pieces, bushes and trees. Most of the colorful costumes are custom-made, including Kaa's – the slithering snake who wears a bright green, glittery get-up. The big wise bear, Baloo, wears an equally big and also furry outfit and headpiece. All of the costumes fun, so they're not too scary for little kids.

This engaging show includes fun choreography and singing, as well as audience involvement. It plays at 10:30 a.m. Mondays-Friday, and 2:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets are $8.50 for the public. They can be purchased from the theater's box office Monday-Friday and just before show time. You also can purchase tickets over the phone using Visa or MasterCard. The show is not intended for children under the age of 3.
