Jungle Book at Derby Theatre

We teamed up with Derby Theatre to look at the ways the characters and story of The Jungle Book relates to the lives of our young people. As the Jungle Book was being featured at the Derby Theatre, the young people had the opportunity of performing a musical and drama piece before one of the main shows at the theatre and at various schools. Baby People’s tutors constructed workshops to enable our young people to write songs for the performance. The young people were also enabled to partake in arts and crafts where they made masks and art in the form of a giant sculpture and costume of Kaa, the snake from The Jungle Book and create their own poetry. This experience gave the young people the opportunity to express themselves through creative mediums and the confidence to showcase what they had created in front of an audience.
