RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - “The Jungle Book” will be TheatreWorks of Northern Nevada’s first show of the 2023 season. This rendition of the beloved Rudyard Kipling novel includes a cast and crew of different ages, abilities and experiences.

Cast members, Maesson Bowman (Mowgli), Sharon Zenz (Baloo), Mickey Melillo (Bagheera), Braylon Martin (Rann) and Director Ashley Sandlier stopped by Morning Break to invite the whole community to their performances.

The show is adapted by John Hartoch from the stories by Rudyard Kipling. “The Jungle Book” takes the audience through the journey of Mowgli, the “man-cub” who was brought up with a family of wolf-cubs. The time has come for him to return to the world of Man when Mowgli is rescued from the clutches of the fearsome tiger Shere Khan, by Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther. But Mowgli is not finished with the jungle, for one day he returns to settle the score with Shere Khan.
