Mowgli grows up believing he’s a wolf. When he learns he is actually a human, he must decide whether to remain with the pack or return to the human world. What will he choose, and will his teacher Baloo the bear teach him the Laws of the Jungle in time to defeat the terrifying tiger, Shere Khan? Join the audience and find out. Tickets are $3 for students grades K – 12, and $5 for adults. Senior Citizens and pre-school students are free.
