Jumanji  
Adventure Theatre MTC Jumanji
 
The story of Jumanji comes to life in a brand new way with this exciting stage production. Based on the original story written by Chris Van Allsburg (Zathura), this family-friendly adventure follows siblings Judy and Peter Shepherd as they play a mysterious game called Jumanji, which brings to life a number of thrilling and potentially dangerous scenarios, like a vicious lion, an erupting volcano and a dozen destructive monkeys that terrorize their family's home. The only way to stop the madness is to see the game all the way through -- will they make it? Robin Williams made the movie famous, but this original version of Jumanji has its own special appeal, complete with detailed production design and imaginative sets and costumes.

A follow-up to the highly acclaimed The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe (2012), this collaboration between Imagination Stage and The Washington Ballet features dance, puppets, music, and singing in a highly theatrical and epic style of performance.
