During last year’s production of Seussical, the Artz Centre’s youngest drama students – the Totz – had their first taste of the stage. And it’s safe to say, they were hungry for more!
So, our littlest performers are now about to take their first steps into their first big Totz production, busy at work preparing their own production of the Jungle Book.
Based on the Rudyard Kipling book of the same name, The Jungle Book musical will see our Totz telling the story of Mowgli, Baloo and the other Jungle animals on stage at the Artz Centre, later this year. And whilst Mowgli learns the Bare Necessities, these energetic youngsters are busy learning the drama tools they’ll need so that they can put on a brilliant show.
The Totz aren’t the only ones who have been spending time with Mowgli and friends this year. Our peer mentor team have recently jumped on the Jungle Bus, as they embarked on a trip to see the live production of the show at the Blackpool Grand Theatre in May. This trip was thanks to West Lancs College, who arranged the event. Our mentor team spent a day enjoying great quality professional theatre and learnt something about one another as well. It’s safe to say that a great day was had by all!
