Theatre at Tarleton and Young People Series Present ‘Jungle Book’


Thursday, October 14, 2021

STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Theatre at Tarleton and the Young People Series will present The Jungle Book on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center Auditorium on the Stephenville campus.

Performances are at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The box office opens one hour before curtain time, and tickets are $3 per person. Seating is general admission.

In the Rudyard Kipling stories, Mowgli, the “man-cub,” is lost in the jungle and rescued from the fearsome tiger, Shere Khan, by Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther.

Brought up with a family of wolf-cubs, the time eventually comes for Mowgli to return to the world of man. However, he’s not finished with the jungle, for one day he returns to settle the score with Shere Khan.
