Forget About Your Worries & Your Strife.

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.

ENROLLMENT INFO |
Who: Any student currently in K-8th grade is invited to enroll, regardless of experience level. We encourage you to enroll early, as we are expecting to reach capacity quickly, and a wait-list will be implemented once all spots are filled. All students who are wait-listed will be given the opportunity to audition. NOTE: Students enrolled in our skills-based Triple Threat classes enjoy the perk of enrolling prior to the general public, so space could be extremely limited.

Once we receive your online enrollment, you will receive an invoice for tuition via email. Upon payment, your enrollment will be considered complete, and you will receive an email confirmation with more details. NOTE: Audition information is only available to enrolled & waitlisted students. You will receive those details in your confirmation email once we receive your tuition payment.

Where: All rehearsals will take place at Stage Center Studios at Grace, 9400 Ellerbe Road, until we move to Marjorie Lyons Playhouse to perform.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON SC’s SoPA CORE VALUES: Before enrolling in our production class, please consider the following…
**You are agreeing to commit your child to the class’s production and schedule. At Stage Center’s SoPA we believe that a good process begets a good product. Every enrolled student will be required to audition as a part of this process. The audition is for the instructors to assess each student’s skill-level and vocal/physical type so that they can be placed in the role that best serves the production and our educational goals. We do not cast based on seniority within the company, nor do we pre-cast any role on student productions. The cast list will be posted at the start of rehearsals. All students interested in our production classes are taught to show up with open minds and hearts, eager to have a life-enriching experience. We are not interested in working with students and families who are only seeking leading or featured roles. We teach that theater is about an ensemble coming together to tell a story, and every person involved has a vital role for it’s success. We allow each student to submit two absences during contract provided they are approved prior to the first class, and do not fall within two weeks of performances, OR the audition and cast meeting. We ask that you check below for dates and times before enrolling, so that the rehearsal schedule can be thoughtfully made with no last-minute hiccups/absences. If you are unsure about some conflicts with our schedule, please feel free to ask us so we can help you decide if it’s realistically something you have the time to make such a big commitment. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED TO STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW AFTER COMPLETING ENROLLMENT. A $30.00 late fee will be added to any invoice not paid by the due date.

A detailed schedule/call sheet will be issued no later than Thursday, March 7.
Two conflicts are allowed during contract only if submitted by the deadline of Saturday, March 2.
NO CONFLICTS are allowed for the audition (March 2), cast meeting (March 7), or within two weeks of performances (this includes May 2 & May 4 thru May 11.)
