EN­DUR­ING TALE BACK ON STAGE

Melville Times - - LIFESTYLE -

WHILE Playlovers aims at re­turn­ing to its former venue at Hack­ett Hall in Floreat, the com­mu­nity the­atre com­pany will con­tinue to present its 2017 sea­son with a pro­duc­tion of The Jun­gle Book at Camelot The­atre in Mosman Park.

Based on the sto­ries of Rud­yard Ki­pling, Mon­ica Flory’s play will bring the ad­ven­ture of Mowgli to the stage, fol­low­ing the In­dian boy raised by wolves, be­friended by pan­ther Baghera and bear Baloo while hunted by tiger Shere Khan.

Sarah Christiner will di­rect the pro­duc­tion with co-di­rec­tor Con­nor Carlyle that fea­tures a young en­sem­ble work­ing with phys­i­cal the­atre, pup­petry, po­etry and an­i­ma­tion.

Christiner said they were cre­at­ing an eclectic style of the­atre true to it­self.

“Au­di­ence mem­bers should ex­pect some­thing quite unique but scrupu­lously faith­ful to Ki­pling’s work,” she said.

The Jun­gle Book is at her­itage­listed Camelot The­atre in Lochee Street in Mosman Park from Oc­to­ber 20 to Novem­ber 4. Tick­ets at www.playlovers.org.au.
