Plano Metropolitan Ballet, will enchant audiences of all ages with an original production, Jungle Book. The story opens as animals dance in the jungle. Suddenly, Baghera, the panther, finds a basket containing a human baby. Careful to hide this treasure from the man-eating tiger, Shere Khan, and his vulture, Oola, Baghera hands the baby over to Akeela to be raised by the wolves. Mowgli grows up with the wolves, including Akeela, the pack leader, and Racksha, the den mother. However, Shere Khan eventually discovers Mowgli, prompting Baghera to usher the child to a village to be among other humans. There Mowgli discovers fire, called the Red Flower. Countess Loui of the monkeys also is enamored with the Red Flower, feeling it will make her the most powerful animal in the jungle. Later, Mowgli separates from Baghera and encounters the snake, Kaa, who cannot determine whether Mowgli is a friend—or food. Fortunately, the jovial bear, Baloo, dashes to the rescue. Along the way, Mowgli also becomes acquainted with Queen Effie and the majestic elephants. Over time, Mowgli has various encounters with Countess Loui, who still desires the Red Flower, and she saves Baloo from a hive of buzzing honey bees. But always lurking are Shere Khan and Oola, who finally find Mowgli. Aided by a jungle-full of loyal animals who wish to protect her, Mowgli escapes from Shere Khan once and for all and realizes that the jungle is truly her home.
