Act, sing, and dance the week away at our high-energy full-day camps! You'll learn and grow your performance skills as you work to put together an actual show in a week. 

Campers will have the OPTIONAL opportunity to audition for roles on the first day of camp and will perform the show on the Friday of camp at the camp location. For campers who want to audition for a role, abbreviated music and script excerpts (“sides”) will for campers to prepare for their auditions and callbacks. You will receive an email with this information. You do not have to audition in order to be in this camp; all campers will have the chance to act, sing, and dance in these fun, upbeat shows! Please note: Auditions and callbacks will be closed.

Camp hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Due to Covid-19 gathering restrictions and the size of our CYT Studio, the camp showcase will be recorded and emailed out as a link to all families.

Jungle Book Kids Synopsis
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.

Disney's The Jungle Book KIDS has a large, expandable ensemble and many strong, featured roles for good singers. Several roles, including Baloo and King Louie, are great for kids with strong comedic skills. The chorus can be expanded to include various animals, trees, plants, rocks and many other jungle inhabitants. Many numbers also involve the full chorus in easy unison singing, making it a great first pick.
