San Diego Ballet Presents “The Jungle Book”, A Fantastic Jungle Adventure

San Diego Ballet announces The Jungle Book, a thrilling blend of ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and giant puppets, at Kroc Center’s Joan B Kroc Theatre on Wednesday, October 26.

Your beloved childhood characters come to life with The Jungle Book

Rudyard Kipling’s beloved tale of friendship comes to life in this fantastic jungle adventure. This colorful production breathes new life into beloved childhood characters, making the adventures of Mowgli and his animal pals thrilling for kids of all ages and adults, too!

“When we work on family-friendly pieces, it is important that we try to do something that has some sort of frame of reference for children,” said Javier Velasco, San Diego Ballet Artistic Director. “The Jungle Book with its message of diversity and friendship not only fits our mission well, but the fact that many of the main characters are animals goes to some wonderful dance opportunities.”

Join Mowgli and his animal pals as they tumble through the jungle, get wrapped up in the coils of Kaa, the snake, and fight off the menacing Sher Khan, the tiger. Along with traditional ballet, San Diego Ballet’s The Jungle Book features hip-hop dancers as orangutans and giant elephant puppets that blend perfectly into the fabric of the piece along with its fun jazzy score.

Info and Tickets

Tickets are $15-$35 and can be purchased online here. Senior, military, and student discounts are also available.
