What does it mean to be A Kids Production?

This is a shortened version of the full production and shorter than the Jr. productions we have done in the past. This production adjusts language and situations to be appropriate for a “school audiences” to watch and/or perform it and reduces the total production to approximately 30 minutes in length.

Production & Audition Fees

Audition Fees are $25 per student.

Limited number of scholarships are available for the production. Please contact Mark Landis to receive the application for Scholarship.

Saturdays, any student that is called and might need to eat will be encouraged to bring a sack lunch or snack.


Auditioning for Jungle Book Kids will be different than our “normal” so that we can begin rehearsals sooner.  Students must submit their one minute song or monologue video via email or Google Drive by no later than January 31st at 12:00PM (noon).  Audition paperwork will also be required to be filled out, no later than January 31st at noon.  A separate email with further details for how to submit your video and a link to the online audition paperwork will be sent by January 22nd to all who have signed up to audition and every 2 days after the 22nd.
