Eleanor Drury’s The Jungle Book — Northwestern Ontario Style

 

On December 6, Eleanor Drury Children’s Theatre presented it’s 35th season on stage.  The classic tale, The Jungle Book, was adapted to include animals from Northwestern Ontario. The Walleye Jr. writer Indiana Enyart has great things to say about the performance.

The Jungle Book is the best play I’ve even been to. One of my favourite scenes was when the raccoons kidnapped Mowgli the frog and gave him the dagger. After that, they broke out into a dance. My personal favourite dancer was the snake because she did a bunch of awesome dance moves, including the splits! The big Japanese drums before the play were awesome too. They had a big boom to them and they were so loud, I could feel the vibration of the drums. I loved The Jungle Book play and I hope you saw it too.
