The Jungle Book Ballet Returns

Gunter Theatre

This storybook ballet is based on the collection of short stories, written by Rudyard Kipling while drawing influence from many of the famed Jungle Book movies. However, the Jungle Book Ballet, much like many of the Carolina Ballet Theatre performances will contain a unique, Greenville twist.

Jungle Book Ballet will feature a unique storyline, centering on the life of Mowgli, a baby abandoned in the Jungles of India and discovered by Bagheera, the Panther. As Mowgli grows, he sets out on an adventure to the human village, acting as an ambassador for the animals. On his mission, he will encounter classic characters like Baloo the Bear and Kaa the Snake. But this unique retelling features the thematic tales of love and forgiveness. Mowgli encounters Shanti, a beautiful human girl, and his life will forever change.

Mowgli will face off with Shanti’s father and brother who set out to mine gems from a temple controlled by monkey’s, and will ultimately be called upon to save the jungle from fire and make peace between the animal kingdom and the human realm.


Featuring a $10 Educational Show on Friday March 6 at 9:45 am
