The Jungle Book, Hume-style

Elementary school put on stage adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic tale this week.

Hume Elementary’s Jamie Spencer played Mowgli in this week’s production of The Jungle Book, and interacted onstage with a colourful cast of familiar characters: Baloo the bear, the villainous Shere Khan, and the royal monkey King Louie.

The energetic show featured Disney musical numbers such as “The Bare Necessities” and “I Want to Be Like You”, put together by musical director Lisa Backus, as well as costumes created by the Grade 4/5s and their parents.

Some of the other students taking on starring roles were Jamaal Radcliffe as Baloo, Ally Oliver as Bagheera, Mason MacKay as King Louie and Cole Jolly as Shere Khan.

On the program for the show, Hume thanked all of their supporters, sending “big thank yous” to the “parents and friends of Hume School, for continually supporting our music program at Hume School over the last 40 years.”
