CYT Lite Show: Jungle Book Kids!
**not eligible to audition for Beauty and the Beast**
8-12 years
Teachers: Amelia Kirk and Becca Bishop
We are so excited to offer a CYT Lite show again this year as a performance opportunity for 8 to 12-year-olds! This class will be fast-paced and packed with learning as the students work toward performing the 30-minute show, Jungle Book Kids. Rehearsals will take place on Tuesday nights during CYT class time and will be 2.5 hours long. In addition, there will be two Saturday rehearsals and a tech rehearsal during the day of the Saturday performances. The class will perform two 30-minute shows. This class will not perform in the class showcase at the end of the class session which is after their two performances.
Students will send a vocal audition video before we begin rehearsals. Callbacks and dance auditions will be held on the first day of class. There are no parent committee requirements, although we will ask for volunteers to help with concessions and tech for the performances or any other needs that come up. This production will use simple costumes similar to last year’s lite show Aristocats Kids, with items brought from home, as well as simple sets and props. 
Our goal with this class is to give our amazing students a chance to shine on stage with more opportunities than the fall show, Beauty and the Beast, could offer them. To allow them to fully commit to their roles in Jungle Book Kids, students who choose this class will not be allowed to audition for Beauty and the Beast. We are looking forward to getting started on this CYT Lite show and hope you are excited to join us!
* There is a $100 production fee in addition to class tuition to cover the additional rehearsal hours, show licensing and tech needs
