You only have eight more days, so act soon. Jungle Book, at the Pasadena Playhouse, is a perfect show for your kids (older than 5 is recommended). It’s a 65-minute-long performance, with no intermission, that will capture your child’s imagination with costumes, puppetry, music, screen projections, and more.
Jungle Book re-imagines Kipling’s classic stories and brings to life their beloved characters (and a few new ones). The stories are told by four actors – Levin Valayil as Mowgli, and Miriam Fernandes, Matt Lacas, and Anita Majumdar, each embodying various popular characters like Shere Khan, Baloo, and Bagheera. Their voices are powerful, their diction perfect, and every so often they will interact with your kid and ask him/her to howl along like a wolf, and so forth.
Have your child also enter The Jungle Book Coloring Contest (adults can enter too, actually). The winner will receive four tickets to the Playhouse’s upcoming production of Native Gardens, plus, the Jungle Book Tree, currently standing in the Playhouse’s courtyard, will be named after him/her/you. (I don’t mean to reveal myself as dense, but it took me a while to realize that the tree is made out of recycled water bottles that have been painted green and other colors to resemble leaves and flowers. The things you can do with a Block Party’s trash!) Check how to participate in this contest here.
Jungle Book will perform Tuesday at 8 pm, Wednesday at 10 am, Thursday at 2 pm and 8 pm, Friday at 8 pm, Saturday at 2 pm and 7:30 pm, and Sunday at 1 pm and 4 pm. Ticket prices start at $20, available at PasadenaPlayhouse.org or by calling (626) 356-7529.
Enjoy this show with your family. Your children will appreciate their puppetry workshops at school much more after this show!
