A digital production, filmed live at The Watermill Theatre by The Umbrella Rooms last month, is now available to watch at home from 16 December to 28 December.

Tickets, priced at £15 or £25 for a rental period of 3 or 7 days, are on sale here. Audio described and captioned versions are also available.

The new musical version of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale is adapted, directed and choreographed by Tom Jackson Greaves with Sanah Ahsan as Poet and Lyricist, Annie Southall as Assistant Director, Priya Patel Appleby as Dramaturg, and Composition by Dom Coyote.

The cast features Peter Ashmore as ‘Shere Khan’ alongside Alexander Bean as ‘Kaa / Councilor Wolf’, Philippa Hogg as ‘Bagheera’, Guido Garcia Lueches as ‘Tabaqui’, Rowena Lennon as ‘Baloo’, and Karishma Young as ‘Mowgli’.

Executive Director Claire Murray said: “School children and families are raving about The Jungle Book’s brilliant songs and beautiful storytelling, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our special Pyjama Performances taking place at the Theatre from this Sunday.

“We’re so excited to be able to share the show on demand, so that everyone can now enjoy this festive treat, in their pyjamas if they wish, in the comfort of their own homes!”
