Adapted from a Rudyard Kipling “Junglebook” story by Y York, “Rikki Tikki Tavi” is a clever comedy about the forging of an unlikely friendship between a self-involved bird, a sweet muskrat and an optimistic baby mongoose. Darzee, ChuChu and Rikki must come together to rid themselves of the cobra Nag, who is eyeing them for his next meal. The result is a sweet and extremely funny tale of cooperation and growing up...Trust me, I’ve seen more children’s theater than you could ever hope to ingest in a lifetime and I’ve even written a children’s play, so you can take my word for it: this production is worth your time and money...“Rikki Tikki Tavi” is worthy of our kids; intelligent, creative, multi-layered and deserving of the overused term “magical”. And it’s funny. Really funny. For kids and adults. --- Mommy Poppins

Y York’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” achieves what so many adaptations of classics strive to do.
It brings the tale into a new century and has it speak to today’s audiences. ---
