MOWGLI’S AD­VEN­TURE

Midland Reporter - - Look Local -

WHILE Playlovers aim to re­turn 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 Bagheera 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.

When Kala­munda ac­tor Evie Madeleine was younger, she loved The Jun­gle Book so she thought it would be “amaz­ing” to be in the show.

The Gooseberry Hill Pri­mary School stu­dent plays the roles of In­dian wolf Leela and pea­cock Mao.

The Jun­gle Book is at her­itage-listed Camelot Theatre, Lochee Street, Mos­man Park, from Oc­to­ber 20 to Novem­ber 4.
