The Adventures of Rikki-Tikki Tavi
ADAPTED FROM THE JUNGLE STORIES OF RUDYARD KIPLING
BY TIM KELLY
Charm, comedy and enchantment are rolled into one to create children’s theatre at its best! Start with an empty stage, then add in jungle sounds, a few props, and simple snippets of animal costumes. Our storyteller from India sparks the audience’s imagination to see the jungle and its creatures as he weaves the magical tale and the actors interpret the roles of cobras, monkeys, wolves, a crocodile, a camel, an elephant and the wily mongoose, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. A British family in old India is in jeopardy from marauding cobras in league with Shere Khan, the arrogant tiger. Only Rikki can save them, and he does so in a surprising way. The opportunities for visual comedy and improvisation are endless in this gem of a play.
