"a family show that dares to be different” The Times ★★★★
"excellent" The Scotsman ★★★★

Opening Week: We've got everything we need

Jungle Law
Bagheera and I teach Mowgli about the Jungle Law
Howdy Jungle Folk,

The time is nearly upon us. We've teched the show. We've done dress rehearsals. We have even had a few previews. So what now? Well, try as we might, the show is not yet perfect. Some nips and tucks required of costumes and some notes from the director and choreographer to tighten up a few things. The funny thing is you can spend so long in the rehearsal room with a fun script and music that you completely love and forget that some day an audiecnce will watch it and hopefully enjoy it. So it's been a rather lovely pleasant reminder to be in front of a live, and very lively, crowd.
