In the year in which Disney's first cartoon celebrates its 50th anniversary, we are delighted to present Stuart Paterson's acclaimed stage adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's original Jungle Book stories. The story of Mowgli, the baby stolen by a tiger and raised by wolves, is thrilling and heart-warming all at once. As Mowgli finally defeats the fearsome tiger, with help from his animal friends, he must come to terms with what life holds for him next, in the jungle or the village.

Thur 14 Dec / 12.30pm - Relaxed Performance.

Fake Fruit (Bananas) - Jak Coventry

Make the Inside Bean Bags:

1. Draw and cut out the template for the bags. One large “leaf shape” front and two side flaps.

2. Overlock the side flaps to the large front and turn inside-out. Do not overlock the opening yet!

3. Fill the bag with beans and some wadding, pin it closed and use wither the overlocker or the sewing machine to stitch it closed.

Make the Outside Cover:

1. Draw and cut out the template for the covers, these are the same as the templates used for the inside bean bags but are 1cm larger at each edge. The outside covers are made from fleece material, obviously yellow!

2. Using the sewing machine, and yellow thread, sew the side flaps to the large front part.

3. Wrap the inside bean bags in some wadding and stuff into the fleece covers.

4. Pin and machine the fleece material closed.

5. Cut off any of the remaining threads.

The designer asked that these fruits were to look bruised and a bit older so they were sprayed with a black paint solution to show bruising, and painted at the tops and bottoms to make the bananas look realistic.

The other pieces of fruits used the same system in that they had an inner bean bag to ensure the beans didn’t spill out if the material burst at any moment.

Some of these fruits will be added the props store in the fake fruit section.
