News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - The classic children's story The Jungle Book will be performed Nov. 18 by the Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program. The children's play, which is free and open to the public, will be given at 7pmCT on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY.
The LWC production - which is also being performed during the day to area schoolchildren - is adapted from the collection of short stories by Rudyard Kipling.
The Jungle Book tells the adventures of a boy, Mowgli, who is raised by wolves in the jungle. As he grows up, he tries to discover his own identity.
LWC Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock, who is the play's director, said people will be able to relate to it in that way, and they will also have a lot of fun with the produciton.
"They'll love the monkeys, they'll love the bear, they'll love all these things," Brock said.
Although the animal characters are enjoyable to watch, Brock said they also address issues about life.
"It's not just fluffy, fun animals," Brock said. "These are jungle animals, and they talk about how they have to kill to live. The laws of the jungle are in this story."
Brock said that children often make great audiences.
"They believe what they're seeing, and it's charged," Brock said. "They are just into it. They love it."
This is the second time the LWC Theatre Program will present The Jungle Book. It was first presented in 2012, and it was a huge success. CAST:
