Upcoming Concerts & Shows
One of literature's most enduring classics is brought vividly to the stage in this exciting adventure of Mowgli, the Indian boy, raised by caring wolves, befriended by Bagheera, the Panther, and Baloo, the Bear, and threatened by Shere Kahn, the evil tiger. Also present are an array of other jungle creatures who inhabit this action-filled play. Interspersed with the Mowgli tale is the equally intriguing story of a young Rudyard Kipling, who is sent from his home in Bombay to a British boarding school where he encounters his own "jungle," including people both good and bad who parallel many of the animal characters he created. Filled with excitement and humor, the play highlights the struggle of good versus evil, the worth of friendship, and the importance of loyalty and other values required for surviving the "law of the jungle."
The Springfield Community has created a tradition to come together and celebrate creativeness, individuality and an art for the dramatics through the annual Springfield Pride Drag Race, a night of performances from drag artists, a live performance from Springfield’s own Debbie Ross and a competition that will culminate with the crowning of the area’s most talented individuals in the art of drag.
VIP tickets are also available for the event by calling 523-2787.
