Deep in the heart of the Jungle, Mowgli the Man-cub is raised by wolves ("Jungle Prologue"), When Shere Kahn the tiger decides that Mowgli is no longer welcome in the Jungle, Bagheera the panther plans to guide him to the safety of the Man village. Mowgli refuses to leave his home, so the two settle down for the night under a Coconut Tree. Their peaceful night is interrupted ('Kaa the Snake") when Kaa the snake lulls Mowgli into a deep sleep ("Trust in Me '). Bagheera chases off the snake ("Night into Day"), just in time for an elephant stampede ("Colonel Hathi's March"). As the elephants march off, Bagheera commands Mowgli to follow him without any more argument.
Mowgli pouts by a large boulder ("Baloo the Bear"), only to discover that it is the giant bear Baloo, who offers his philosophy on life ("The Bare Necessities"). During his "lesson," Mowgli is kidnapped by monkeys ("The Bare Necessities' Reprise) and taken to their leader, King Louie, who wants to learn how to be a man ("I Wan'na Be Like You"). Bagheera rescues Mowgli while the disguised Baloo distracts King Louie ("I Wan'na Be Like You" - Reprise) When the monkeys try to follow in pursuit, Shere Khan scares them away ("Shere Khan the Tiger'").
Baloo realizes that the Jungle is not safe for Mowgli, who overhears him and runs away, dejected ("Mowgli Runs"). Mowgli's Jungle friends promise to protect him ("That's What Friends Are For"), but Shere Khan finds him anyway. Baloo, Mowgli and the Jungle work together to tie up the tiger ("The Battle"). The Coconut Tree, revealed to be the young girl Shanti in disguise, blindfolds Shere Khan, who exits in shame. Even though he is now safe, Mowgli decides to go to the Man village with Shanti, but will always consider the Jungle his home ("The Bare Necessities" - Finale, "I Wan'na Be Like You" - Bows).
Baby Elephant – There is a solo line in the song as well as marching, so the student should have a sense of music and movement. Vocal Range E3 - A3
Bagheera – Student should be physically agile and uninhibited with good command of his or her body. The actor should also possess a natural talent for acting, singing and leading a story. Bagheera should act like an older brother or sister to Mowgli. Vocal Range D3 - Bb3
Baloo – Student should be exuberant with a great natural talent for singing and acting. Baloo provides much of the comedic relief in the story, so the actor must possess a natural sense of comedy and not afraid to be wild and crazy and physically uninhibited. The actor should not be self-conscious and should enjoy the spotlight. Baloo's part in "I Wan'na Be Like You" demands a singer with a strong sense of rhythm.
Vocal Range C3 - D4
Coconut Tree / Shanti – Shanti is the girl who takes Mowgli to the village at the end of the story. She is hiding in the jungle the entire time disguised as a Coconut Tree. Student should exude sweetness and kindness and have a natural ability for acting and singing. She has a couple of solos as the Coconut Tree. Vocal Range C3 - C4
Colonel Hathi – Colonel Hathi, the elephant, is in charge of the elephant brigade, but is also a little forgetful. He is good at giving commands but doesn't really understand what's going on around him. The student should be able to sing well and act like a drill sergeant but also be a bit forgetful. This is a good role to feature a student who has talent but may not be ready for the leading role just yet. Vocal Range D3 - A3
Elephant Troupe – The Elephant Troupe can have as many or as few children who would like to participate – at least eight. Students will not need to be strong singers, but should be good movers/dancers so they can physicalize the behavior of elephants and march in and out of formation. Vocal Range D3 - C#4
Jungle Chorus – The Jungle Chorus will be our ensemble of singers, actors and dancers. These roles will offer great opportunities to showcase our students' varied skills. With groups made up of bees, bushes, flowers, plants, prickly pears, rocks, trees, vultures and wolves. There will be plenty of song and dance to go around. Vocal Range C3 - E4
Kaa & Coils – Kaa, the snake, supplies threat and danger to Mowgli's journey out of the jungle. This student should have flair as well as good vocal and movement skills to be the lead Kaa (the head of the snake). At least five other students will act as the body of Kaa. Each of the actors in the scene will have solo lines that are spoken and sung. Students should have some natural acting and singing ability who can also dance.
Vocal Range D3 - B3
King Louie – King Louie is King of the Monkeys. This student will need strong comedic timing and good singing ability. They should have flair and should not be afraid to act like a monkey. Vocal Range C3 - C4
Monkeys – Monkeys should be strong dancers. "I Wan'na Be Like You" offers the chance to do great musical choreography. Vocal Range C3 - D4
Mowgli – Mowgli is a boy who gets along with everyone and who is very likable. He has a joyful and curious nature, and a twinkle in his eye. The student should have a spark that can captivate the audience and should be a bit feisty. Possibly a student with a natural talent for acting and singing. Vocal Range C3 - D4
Old Monkey – Student should be a stronger actor over a singer. He or she should not be afraid to assume the physical traits of a monkey.
Shanti’s Family – Shanti's Family is not seen, but represented by offstage voices.
Shere Khan – Shere Khan, the tiger, is King of the Jungle. Student should be physically threatening, either in size, attitude, or both. He is the villain and the story depends on a good villain. Vocal Range E3 - C4
