Oldham Coliseum presents a musical adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s famous story The Jungle Book April 3–19.

It’s the first family show the Coliseum has produced outside of the festive season for almost 20 years.

Performed by a cast of seven, The Jungle Book explores the universal themes of family, belonging and identity. The design of the production is a meeting of worlds, set in an ‘urban jungle’ playground upon which the cast climb and swing.
