Show in a Week: Disney's The Jungle Book Kids

Rehearsed and performed Monday 25 – Friday 29 July 2022
Ages 5-11

The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in our youngest Show in a Week and we need a Baloo, Mowgli, King Louie and more!
Open to anyone aged 5-11 as of 31 August 2022. No experience or previous membership of Trinity Youth Theatre necessary.

“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone involved with the production of Winnie the Pooh last week. My daughter had an absolutely fabulous time and enjoyed every minute. The performance was wonderful! The programmes, photography, costumes, sound and stage management were so professional. The whole production was such a great experience for the children and so enjoyable to watch.”
Parent from our 2021 Show in a Week

 


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.


What is a Show in a Week?

Our Shows in a Week are a fantastic opportunity for children aged 5-11 – to rehearse, perform, have fun, make friends and create memories that will last for years. Over the course of a week, we will put together a show – acting, rehearsing songs and learning dance numbers to then perform at Trinity Theatre with costumes, make-up and props to friends and family.

To audition for a named part, participants will need to sing a song from a similar popular show – selected by us and sent out in advance – and learn a few lines for different characters from the show.

Everyone who signs up will be a part of the cast whether that be auditioning for a named character or for those who don’t want to audition, as part of our fun ensemble cast. Video auditions will be held in late June / early July and are a fun, low pressure way to determine who gets what part.


When Does It Happen?

  • Auditions: Held in June, with casting announced in advance of the show week. Everyone will get a part
  • Rehearsals: Monday 25 July – Friday 29 July, 9.30am – 12.30pm, for everyone; Monday 25 July – Friday 29 July, 9.30am – 4pm for school years 4-6
  • Performance: Friday 29 July, 4.30pm

Keeping Everyone Safe

Trinity Theatre’s Safeguarding Policy

We hope COVID will be a distant memory by Summer 2022, and that we will be able to run this show as planned, but if we have to cancel or postpone the week, everyone will receive a full refund or the option to move to the new dates.

What’s Included?

In addition to a week of showstopping fun and memories to last a lifetime, participants will all get two tickets to the final performance, a show t-shirt and a copy of the show photos.


Fees and Bursaries

It costs £100 for children who will be in School Years 1-3 from September 2022, and £140 for those joining School Years 4-6 in September 2022 (older children take part in a longer day).

No child should be unable to take part because of financial constraints. Bursaries from The Elliott Fund are available for those on low incomes. Please contact us.
