Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, ‘The Jungle Book’, will be brought to the open-air stage at Glamis Castle next month as part of a national tour.

Following its successful first tour last year, Chapterhouse Theatre Company is revising the production and visiting the beautiful surroundings of the Glamis estate on Saturday, July 11.

The production promises to be a highly engaging family show complete with song, dance and some loveable puppet monkeys.

Although a new adaptation, the story remains the same. In the magical Indian jungle a new arrival changes the animal kingdom forever and the show features all of the book’s favourite animal characters which are brought to life to create an enchanting and fun-filled musical show for children of all ages.

Rudyard Kipling’s best-known and most loved story is set to be a summer hit for all the family at venues which include some of the most beautiful gardens of the UK and Ireland.

And for this performance children are being encouraged to dress up in their favourite animal costume and join in the Jungle Parade in the interval.

Director Philip Stevens said: “The Jungle Book has such an iconic place in our hearts and minds. It’s a great privilege to have the opportunity to direct this show for Chapterhouse Theatre Company.”

Chapterhouse Theatre Company has been year touring for more than 15 years and has established itself as one of the most successful and critically-acclaimed touring companies in the country with productions of classics as diverse as ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and Jane Eyre.
