Take center stage with this skill-intensive performance class! Students will refine acting skills through the process of auditioning, rehearsing, and performing in a full-length play. Professional actors, directors, and choreographers straight off Childsplay's stages will direct The JunGirl Book. The first two weeks of rehearsals are on our main campus and the last week students rehearse at the Tempe Center for the Arts with final performances at 11 am and 2 pm on Friday, June 29th.
About the Play:
Raised by a family of wolves, Girl must leave the only home she's ever known when the fearsome tiger Shere Khan unleashes his mighty roar. This adaptation of The Jungle Book by Anne Negri, a frequently commissioned playwright for Childsplay (Maddi's Fridge, Girls Who Wear Glasses), reimagines the iconic story with a female protagonist and strong ensemble of captivating characters in an epic journey of self-discovery celebrating the power of collaboration.
Produced with special arrangement from the author.
THE JUNGIRL BOOK
By Anne Negri
Adapted from the story by Rudyard Kipling
