This Spring, the Oldham Coliseum are set to bring a musical adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s famous story, The Jungle Book to the stage. A perfect treat for the whole family to enjoy this Easter.
The classic coming of age story will be packed with super sing-a-long songs, humour and storytelling.
Exploring the universal themes of family, identity and belonging, The Jungle Book will be performed by a hugely talented cast of seven and will be set in an ‘urban jungle’ playground. Directed by Sarah Punshon (former Artistic Director of The Dukes, Lancaster), the classic coming of age story will be packed with super sing-a-long songs, humour and storytelling.
Will Mowgli outwit the cruel and powerful Shere Khan? Join the charming man-cub, his wolf pack and his friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther on this thrilling musical adventure.
A perfect treat for the whole family to enjoy this Easter.
Aside from the Coliseum’s annual family festive show, The Jungle Book will be the first family show that the theatre has produced for almost 20 years. And Oldham’s annual traditional pantomime is one of the best in the North, so we’ve got high hopes for this stage-musical by the Olivier award-winning writer, Jessica Swale.
