The Portville Central School Drama Club presents “The Jungle Book,” on October 28 & 29, 2016 in the Portville Central School Auditorium. The Friday evening show will be staged at 7:00 p.m. On Saturday, there will be a 2:00 p.m matinee.
Adapted from the Mowgli stories of Rudyard Kipling by Vera Morris, this performance will feature approximately 20 students from grades 7-10. Seniors Gabriella Wilson and Anna Wray will be directing the play.
Come hear the incredible tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves. With the help of his friends — the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera and the python Kaa — Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle. Some of the jungle boy’s adventures are gripping, like the time he encounters the hooded cobra who guards the treasure vault in the Deserted City. Others, like the coconut-tossing monkeys who take him prisoner, are hysterical. But the jungle is also dangerous, for it is the home of Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger who has vowed to destroy Mowgli. With his fawning jackal follower, Shere Khan plots to take control of the jungle. Mowgli must use all his strength and courage to stop Shere Khan before it is too late.
Admission for adults is $5.00, for students/children/senior citizens it is $3.00 and can be purchased at the door.
