THE JUNGLE BOOK


Creating value where we live and work. Together. Applauding Manitoba Theatre for Young People.


A lot of really great theatre is created out of a sense of displacement. In The Jungle Book, Mowgli finds a place where he belongs. He will lose the home he has found, but this loss doesn’t offset everything he’s gained and the knowledge that will always be a part of him. Most of us can relate to that feeling of displacement, to the search for a place where we are cherished and allowed to be ourselves. Even though we’re looking at these profound emotions, there is also great joy and fun in this story. Our cast is so well versed in how to mine each opportunity for exuberance and silliness. I am sure you will get swept up in the fun of all those moments in the play. Ultimately, The Jungle Book is a show meant to be experienced with friends and family. It’s about the family who teaches you the ways of the world and that comes to your rescue when you need them. It is also about the family that you are going to build as you grow up. It’s time to go wild. Welcome to the jungle!

I first came across the work of Greg Banks about a decade ago, and I am very excited that his adaptation of The Jungle Book is now being experienced by MTYP audiences. In many of Greg’s plays, the actors change characters very quickly. He’s got a real sense of how to keep the pace rolling in story theatre. There is also so much heart, compassion and insight in the way he tells a story. I really admire that.

Message from the Director When I was thirteen, my dad drove me to the train station in downtown Montréal from where I was to depart for my first year of boarding school. I was going to be living in a completely different world from the one I had grown up in. And I remember vividly the feeling of abject terror of the unknown. Mowgli’s story brings back this experience for me — a boy thrust into the jungle when he’s a baby, parented by wolves and taught by a panther and a bear how to survive and have fun in the dark and dangerous jungle where a ferocious tiger prowls patiently, waiting to devour him. He may adapt to jungle life, but does he ever really belong? Can this boy live as an animal with other animals? This is one of the questions we explore throughout Mowgli’s journey in The Jungle Book. P.S. I survived that boarding school. Robb Paterson

Designer Robin Fisher talks about what inspired her while creating the world of The Jungle Book About the Set “Inspiration for The Jungle Book came from researching images of jungles in India,” says Fisher. “The director and I both really wanted to evoke the lush denseness of the jungle and the variety of animals that live within it. It was also important to create a space that could be used as a playground as we, the audience, watch Mowgli transition from boy to man. There are many moments within the play that require hidden entrances and very quick character changes so we created different levels and hanging vines to enhance the element of surprise.”

About the Costumes “The inspiration for the costumes were based on a harem-style pant which is very easy to move in and flexible for the actors to jump around as animals. This style of pant also helps to give the illusion that the actors don’t have legs but ‘haunches’ like an animal. We are also using Vibram FiveFingers shoes to give them the appearance of paws instead of feet. And, so that they didn’t succumb to a huge amount of sweat, the wardrobe team created our own fabric fur rather than using fun-fur for this show. It’s really exciting to see how it all comes together.”
