Event Description

From the creators of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea comes a new theatrical adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book, re-imagining the classic stories through modern eyes to transport audiences to the world's jungles. Using a rich soundscape and immersive multimedia, Jungle Book will feature your favorite characters like you've never seen them before and will delve deep into the original themes of the story, and our relationship to the animal kingdom.

Playhouse Square is pleased to present this special sensory-friendly matinee for guests on the autism spectrum and their families, as well as those with sensory challenges or developmental disabilities. Children, families and groups requiring a sensory-friendly environment are most welcome.

  • Guests are free to talk, leave their seats and move freely during the performance 
  • House lights in the theater will be left on low throughout the performance
