Description

Upstage is thrilled to be bringing a new program to the Burbank and North Hollywood area!

The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS. Specially adapted from the classic Disney animated film, Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS features a host of colorful characters and your favorite songs from the movie.

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.

All students ages 5 to 9 are welcome to join our after-school play production class on Thursday’s. The class introduces theatre vocabulary and technique through interactive theatre games and scene practice, as well as music and dance! The experience will include a fully realized final production with professionally designed sets, costumes, lights, sound and props. Veteran Upstage director Sara Cravens has many years of experience working with children and has worked on over 10 productions. Each child is encouraged to fully participate and is considered an integral part in our final production. Please check the production dates below, as we expect every child to be fully present for all performances.

Price includes a script, and downloads of the musical tracks to practice with at home. We provide costumes and props that will live at the theatre and be used in performances. Tickets are sold separately through a link provided by Upstage in the weeks prior to performances.
