About the Show

This is the story of Mowgli, the man-cub, who is raised by wolves. Shere Kahn, the tiger and King of the Jungle, decides that Mowgli is no longer welcome in the Jungle, so Bagheera, the Panther, plans to guide Mowgli to safety. A song-filled celebration of friendships, fun and exciting adventure! Including favorites "Trust in Me," "The Bare Necessities" and "I Wan'na Be Like You."


Performance opportunities for developing voices

DownStage Center produces several "low tech" shows each season for which the key word is "nurturing." DSC programming features a "no tears" workshop style audition, a rehearsal schedule tailored to the needs of our youngest actors, and performance opportunities in small venues just right for developing voices. Additionally, alumni and MainStage performers are used as mentors and in production roles. Students ages 7 and up participate in DSC shows.

The DownStage Center Education Division offers year round camps, and classes for students ages 3 to 18. Musical Theatre Goes to School is our DSC outreach program.
