In School Performances

American Stage School Tour brings the finest children’s literature to the stage. The 2017 School Tour will hit the road in September 2017 and run through November 2017.

The Garden of
by Rudyard Kipling

Adapted by Y York
Directed by Tiffany Ford

This hilarious adaptation of the Kipling classic offers a poignant message about sharing and collaboration, and encourages students to acknowledge the power of “we” instead of “me”.
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!

THE GARDEN OF RIKKI TIKKI TAVI was a sell-out hit in its Honolulu Theatre for Youth premiere, and we’re excited to bring this family friendly romp to Tampa Bay.
