Youth Theatre Carson City has announced it is opening auditions for Disney’s “The Jungle Book, Jr.” The show will run four performances, March 29-31, 2019 as part of its Springtime Double Feature in the newly renovated Bob Boldrick Theatre at the Carson City Community Center. The theatre group is looking for actors, singers, and dancers grades K-9, who will be cast to play a host of colorful Disney characters.
The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS. Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, a human boy named Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of the jungle.
After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.
Internships are available for students grades 10-12, which will give older students a chance to experience theatre from the production side. Jungle Book Interns’ responsibilities will include attending and assisting with rehearsals, mentoring younger performers, assisting with publicity, serving in technical capacities during performances and more.
Auditions for Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019 at the Carson City Community Center located at 851 E. William St. in Carson City. Auditions are open to all boys and girls grades K-9. Auditioners should prepare a one minute song and be prepared to learn a dance. Additional audition materials can be found on our website.
