Auditions Tuesday and Wednesday

It's time to find some monkeys and wolves, a panther, bear and tiger and even a few humans who want to spend some time the jungle!!

And the next show is....

The set of The Real Princess and the Pea is barely cleared off the stage and we are already gearing up for our next undertaking. This time we will be visiting with a pack of wolves, a troop of monkeys, a tiger and many other inhabitants of the jungles of India. Join us for Mowgli's adventures as related by Rudyard Kipling in his famous tale, "The Jungle Book." This version also includes a peek into the life of the story's author and his experiences at boarding school. Auditions will be January 7th and 8th from 5 to 7pm at the Arts and Recreation Building in Ayden and the performances will be March 13th and 14th. It's going to be a great adventure!!

Who's the REAL princess?

Such a small thing a pea is, considering how much control it has over the ruling of a kingdom. Come see who the prince chooses and does that small, round green vegetable agree?
