Geordie Productions is thrilled to present the world premiere of The Jungle Book in a
new adaptation by Tracey Power, as part of Geordie’s Montreal Mainstage Series at the D.B. Clarke Theatre, from
April 25th to May 4th, 2008. DEAN PATRICK FLEMING, director of last season’s acclaimed Alice’s Adventures in
Wonderland returns to bring Rudyard Kipling’s classic coming-of-age tale alive in an ambitious production featuring
some of the finest actors and designers in Montreal. A theatrical feast for the eyes, The Jungle Book is truly
theatre for the whole family to enjoy (recommended for ages 6 & up).
Orphaned in the jungle as an infant and adopted by a wolf pack, young Mowgli the man-cub is taught the Laws of
the Jungle by Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. As Mowgli discovers himself and his place as a human, the
jungle’s greatest menace Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger prepares to finish the kill he abandoned years ago.
A stunning set design by AMY KEITH along with inventive lighting by award-winning designer ANA CAPPELLUTO unveils
the mysterious depths of the jungle on the stage. Monkeys, hyena, wolves and more come to life with SUSANA
VERA’s costumes & masks while percussionist KRISTIE IBRAHIM will be onstage creating the soundscape of lush jungle
rhythms. Stage management is provided by MELANIE ST-JACQUES.
