Coming to the Taft Theatre this Month:
The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s DISNEY’S THE JUNGLE BOOK KIDS, February 16-25, 2019 at the Taft Theatre.
Adapted from the classic Disney animated film, this musical features a host of colorful characters and famous songs from the animated movie. Based on the works of Rudyard Kipling, the “Man-Cub” Mowgli, bounds through the jungle and learns what it means to be human. You won’t want to miss this culturally-infused and spectacular Disney classic!
In an effort to increase cultural diversity, as the production is set in the jungle of India, The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati (TCT) is collaborating with various local groups to comprehensively infuse the production with Indian culture, in order to authenticate the production in a culturally-relevant and educational manner.
TCT has hired a Cultural Consultant and Associate Choreographer, Ms. Anupa Mirle, to focus on Indian authenticity within DISNEY’S THE JUNGLE BOOK KIDS.
