What the Press Said:

“Within five minutes the spectacular costumes, set and performances transport you. This production marks Canal Walk Theatre’s 10th anniversary and Fred Abrahamse, and his crew should be proud. It’s nice to see children’s theatre blessed with a healthy budget. It is clear that a bit of money went into the design and execution of the production. Kids ooh and ah when the elephants trundle onstage and when Mowgli swings high above the crowd.” THE CAPE ARGUS
