THAT eternal man-cub Mowgli is set to trade untamed jungle for downtown Sheffield on Tuesday when The Jungle Book is re-opened in time for school half term holiday.

The Birmingham Stage Company are sending Baloo the bear and Shere Khan the tiger to Tudor Square until next Saturday.

The team behind Sheffield audience hits such as Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvelous Medicine, Danny the Champion Of The World and Terry Deary’s award-winning Horrible Histories bring to life Rudyard Kipling creations, some of the best known children’s story characters ever.

Until Saturday they are back at The Lyceum with the story of Mowgli, a young boy who is raised in the jungle by a family of wolves. When Shere Khan swears to kill the child, Baloo and Bagheera, the panther, agree to take Mowgli to the man village for his safety. But the jungle holds danger and surprises for them all in this family adventure.

Tickets start at £11.50.
