November 11, 2021 @ 7:00 pm| $12
Century High School’s award-winning Opening Knights Drama Club returns to the stage with a lively production of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, The Jungle Book. Performances are November 11, 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7 p.m. and November 13 and 20 at 2 p.m.
A cast and crew of more than 65 students bring to life this family-friendly play that will delight audience members of all ages. The Jungle Book is a classic coming-of-age story told through the eyes of author Rudyard Kipling who parallels his own life with that of his main character, Mowgli. Each character in Rudyard’s life is juxtaposed with an animal of similar characteristics in his tale.
In a play featuring both human and animal characters, the student performers will take the stage wearing innovative costumes including handmade masks depicting wolves, monkeys and several other jungle animals. A nearly life-size elephant operated by two cast members will also grace the stage of The Jungle Book.
November 11, 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7 p.m.
