Following its critically-acclaimed 2017 summer tour of The Wind in the Willows, Immersion Theatre Company is throwing its trademark energy into its wildest show yet, a brand new musical adaptation of the family classic, The Jungle Book.
The show will be embarking on a 36-venue nationwide tour next spring.
Written and directed by Immersion Theatre’s artistic director, James Tobias, and composed by Robert Gathercole, The Jungle Book sees the duo reunited following their successful partnership on Immersion’s previous adaptations of The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wind in the Willows.
Filled with music, audience interaction, and the chance to meet the characters after the show, audiences can to join Mowgli and his friends, Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther, on a madcap jungle adventure as they attempt to outwit a slithering snake, some cheeky monkeys, and the fierce tiger, Shere Khan!
Casting to be announced.
Immersion Theatre is going from strength to strength since it was forned in 2010 by producers and Stage One alumni, James Tobias and Rochelle Parry.
At present, the company is producing the Olivier award-winning Our House (2017 UK Tour) starring George Sampson and Emmerdale’s Deena Payne, The Wizard of Oz (Christmas 2017), Robin Hood (Christmas 2017), and The Jungle Book (Spring 2018 UK Tour) with two further yet-to-be-announced tours planned for summer 2018.
