ABOUT DISNEY'S THE JUNGLE BOOK KIDS: Adapted from Disney's beloved animated film and the works of Rudyard Kipling, the "man cub" Mowgli, bounds thorugh the jungle and learns what it means to be human.

ABOUT DISNEY'S THE LION KING JR.: A stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the spawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father's life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult price, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king.
