Oklahoma City Ballet heads to the jungles of India to dance with Mowgli, Baloo, Shere Khan and Kaa – the beloved characters of Rudyard Kiplings’ grand imagination. The Oklahoma City Civic Center stage transforms into a topical rainforest set with magnificent animals made possible through the fantastical and elegant puppetry and costume design of Emmy Award winner Gregory Crane. Shows are at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11; 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13. “Mowgli: The Jungle Book Ballet” will be on the Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre Stage at the civic center, 201 N. Walker Ave., Oklahoma City. Tickets are $25-$61, available at www.okcballet.com.
