IN THE GARDEN OF RIKKI TIKKI TAVI
American Stage School Tour performed on our mainstage
October 21 & 22 @ 12PM | Book Now

By Rudyard Kipling | Adapted by Y. York | Directed by Tiffany Ford
American Stage’s annual School Tour brings the finest children’s literature to the stage. The 2017 School Tour of IN THE GARDEN OF RIKKI TIKKI TAVI will hit the road in September, making a stop at our mainstage for two special performances in October.
When Rikki Tikki Tavi washes up in a pristine garden, Darzee, the sassy tailor bird, is not amused and refuses to share. Darzee and her friend, Chuchu, pull out the stops attempting to run off the pesky mongoose. But watch out for Nag, the cobra! The other animals will have to band together when Nag sets his sights on Rikki! This hilarious adaptation of the Kipling classic offers a poignant message about sharing and collaboration, and encourages us all to acknowledge the power of “we” instead of “me.”
