It’s a jungle out there.
At least if you’re vying for a part in the youth theatre production of “The Jungle Book KIDS!”
A record-setting 150 children auditioned to play Mowgli, Baloo, King Louise, Shere Khan and the rest of the gang Jan. 4, 5 and 6 at the Norvell Theater, said Justin Dionne, marketing director for Piedmont Players Theatre Inc.
Budding actors traveled from all around Rowan County and beyond, including Charlotte, New London, Concord, Statesville and Mooresville.
Those auditioning sang, danced, and participated in a cold reading from the script.
Disney’s “The Jungle Book KIDS!” is the third production of the inaugural Norvell season and will be performed for area 4th and 5th graders in February, with public performances Feb. 18 and 25 and Feb. 19 and 26.
