Synopsis

Can Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a young mongoose, save the world—or at least his minute section of it? Rikki is the courageous mongoose who must defend the garden and its inhabitants from two cobras whose reign of terror has gone unchecked. With unrelenting action, good and evil battle until the last breathless moment. Kipling's powerful sense of drama will hold the attention of even very young audiences.

Customer Reviews

"Wonderful play! We won first place at our UIL competition! So glad I found this script. Works great for a younger cast. Short play. Lovely!"
Review by Brandi Paige, Carpenter Middle School, Plano, Texas
"We used this show for our very first one act play! It was cute and the kids had fun characterizing the animals. The story can be told in any space and it’s definitely doable with middle school aged kiddos."
Review by Hannah Burkhauser, St. Austin Catholic School, Austin, Texas
"This has been one of my favorite shows to direct. It is short and easy to grasp for middle-school actors, but with great opportunity for lavish sets, costuming and choreography. The elements of good and evil are so rich, with terrific characters."
Review by Rick Clark, Village Academy, Powell, Ohio
"We competed with this piece and won state. It is a great ensemble piece and allows for a lot of creative staging."
Review by Mary Nickles, Montessori School of Anderson, Anderson, SC
