Redmond High School Drama will journey through “The Jungle Book” March 2-4 and 9-11.
This action-packed adaptation of the classic adventure story is based on the original Rudyard Kipling story. Meet the precocious Mowgli, who is as fierce as any of the members of his wolf pack. Upon learning that he is a human and not a wolf, he seeks to reconcile these very different identities. Will he decide to remain with the pack, or return to the world of humans from which he was born? Will he learn the Law of the Jungle in time to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal of all? Mowgli’s quest for identity is at the heart of this amazing story, set within a grand jungle adventure.
Ryan Colombe, who stars as Mowgli, says, “Every moment of this show is full of entertainment, energy and emotions.”
The drama department’s talented students have been working hard for many weeks to assemble the show, which is suitable for all audiences.
Scenic designer Sarah Cauthorn enthuses, “This is definitely a show worth seeing.”
Shows are at 7 p.m. in the Redmond High School Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10; half price on Thursdays.
