In the heart of Chanda, an Indian jungle, all of the animals have an important role to play. All except the frogs. King Raja has deemed the frogs to be insignificant outcasts and they get pushed around and disrespected by the other animals.


When an unlikely friendship forms between a frog and a lion (Jai and Frankie), the other animals are not quite sure what to make of it. Frankie hopes that if he can help Jai be more like the other animals, the frogs might find a way to fit in. Maybe they could learn to sing like the birds, be tough like the lions, wise like the owls or funny like the monkeys.


But alas, Jai fails in his pursuits. And to make matters worse, when King Raja hears of the new friendship, he threatens to exile the frogs and any animal found to be associating with them.


Will the other animals ever learn to appreciate the frogs? Will Jai learn to stand up for himself? Or will the evil King Raja continue to rule Chanda through fear and intimidation? Find out in the powerful and entertaining comedy drama: It’s A Jungle Out There.

Moral: Don’t be afraid to go against what is popular, in order to stand up for what is right. It's A Jungle Out There is an uplifting musical that embraces diversity and has a strong anti-bullying message.
