Ever been abandoned in the jungle, adopted by wolves, taught by a bear, befriended by a panther and chased by a tiger? In the Missoula Children’s Theatre musical adaptation of THE JUNGLE BOOK, Mowgli the man-cub has all these adventures and more. Join him as he escapes from the Bander-log, outwits a tiger, enlists the help of a rock-python, explores what it means to be human and learns a lesson from the brave mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Original music and rollicking humor give new life to the classic tale by Rudyard Kipling.
"THE JUNGLE BOOK," Conceived and Written by Michael McGill, Music and Lyrics by Michael McGill
Theatre Camp Information:
*Registration via the WSMA website will be live beginning October 1, 2022.
*This camp is only for Wyoming students in Kindergarten – 6th grade.
*This camp will run November 14-18, Monday – Thursday from 4 p.m. - 8:15 p.m at WMS' Fay Auditorium, with a dress rehearsal Friday from 3:45-6:30. There will be two shows on Saturday, November 19 at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m (call time may be as early as 3:00).
*If you register and pay for the camp, your student is guaranteed a role in “The Jungle Book”. Among the roles to be cast are Mowgli (the man-cub), Bagheera (the panther) and Akela (the leader of the pack), the entire wolf pack, Shere Khan (the tiger) with his side-kick Tabaqui (the jackal), Nag and Nagaina (the cobras), Darzee (the bird), Hathi (the master elephant), Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (the mongoose), Kaa (the rock-python), Buck (a buck) and of course the Bander-log.
*All students will audition for their individual part/role on Monday between 4 – 6 p.m. After the audition, some students will stay for rehearsal that evening and some will be finished for the day. After the students learn their roles, they will receive a rehearsal schedule for the rest of the week (Kindergarten and 1st graders will not stay past 6 p.m. on school nights). Students MUST be available for the FULL WEEK of rehearsals – they will not be excused for appointments or practices when they are called to rehearse.
*Students do NOT have to prepare anything for the audition! The Missoula directors will ask students to act and sing various things, but no advance preparation is necessary – just bring a smile and good attitude.
*There are 4 Tech Crew parts for interested 5th or 6th graders.
*The cost to participate is $160 per student.
A full week of rehearsals with professional directors,
Two fully produced musical performances - with a full set and costumes from Missoula,
Pizza dinner between the two shows on Saturday,
