Emerald Coast Theatre Company Presents The Jungle Book
This spring, Emerald Coast Theatre Company will be offering three children's musical theater programs centered on Disney's beloved classic The Jungle Book. Specially adapted from the classic film, this musical includes favorite Disney tunes, such as “The Bare Necessities,” “That’s What Friends Are For,” and “I Wan’na Be Like You.” Inspired by Rudyard Kipling's book of the same name, The Jungle Book tells the story of Mowgli, a child raised in the Indian jungle by wolves, as his friends Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear try to convince him into leaving the jungle before the evil tiger Shere Khan arrives. The children will bring this story to life! Performance dates, times, and locations ($5 suggested donation):
- April 15th (6:30 PM) at Destin Elementary School
- April 23rd (6:30 PM) at South Walton High School
- May 9th (11:00 AM) at Destin Community Center
You're probably wondering what any of this has to do with Andy. Glad you asked! We are friends with Nathanael and Anna (see below), plus Andy has always liked the artistic side of The Jungle Book. It was no surprise that he happily agreed to paint the backdrops for them!
