The Jungle Book

LHS Off-Broadway finds ‘The Bare Necessities’

VALDOSTA — Colorful costumes, well-known music, and a cast of enthusiastic performers help bring Lowndes High School Off-Broadway’s production of “Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids” to life.

While the famed movie has always been for kids, this stage adaptation of the animated classic has been abbreviated for a younger cast for young audiences, though viewers of all ages should enjoy this show.

It features the familiar characters of the young boy Mowgli lost in the jungle without human contact; his animal friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther, as well as all of the dangerous animals such as Kaa the snake and Shere Khan the tiger.

This live version includes the beloved songs which generations know from the Disney cartoon: “The Bare Necessities,” “I Wan’na Be Like You,” “That’s What Friends Are For,” etc.

LHS Off-Broadway has a big season planned. The student theatre troupe opened the season a few weeks ago with the musical “The Marvelous Wonderettes.” Following “The Jungle Book” this week, the annual student-led production “5, 6, 7, 8: Movie Night Madness” runs in November, a to-be-announced Christmas production in December, “Shrek The Musical” in March, and more.

THE CAST: Olivia Maule, Brandon Chandler, Dylan Schindler, Aerial Livingston, Asher Brooks, Karmann Evans, Gabby Powell, Keenan Evans, Kenny Dao, Paxton Joiner, Kennedy Coleman, Elyssa Pate, Cole Gavvitt, GaQuan Hankins, Laine Fletcher, Noah Dalton, Lindsey Scarborough, Jimmy Dao, Henny Hari, Avery Sirmans, Christian Dean-Fiskal, Zach Johnson, Ashlyn Parker, Morgan Brady, Gloria Stanley.

DIRECTION, PRODUCTION: Phyllis Childree, director; Dylan Schindler, musical director; Andrew Mast, Casey Van Nortwick, Kimsey Aguero, Haley Aguero, Joanna Jasinksi, Dana Rumker, tech.
