CCT schedules auditions for 'Jungle Book'

Children’s Community Theatre is inviting children, ages 7 to 17, to audition for its spring production of Disney’s "The Jungle Book."

The show, based on the animated Disney version of a Rudyard Kipling tale, tells the story of a young boy, Mowlgli, raised in the jungle by a family of wolves. The cast of characters features the fearsome man-eating tiger Shere Khan, the sinister python Kaa, the hipster orangatang King Louie Mowgli’s protector, the panther Baggeera, and his best friend Baloo the bear. A jungle full of characters rounds out the cast, including elephants, monkeys, vultures and more.

CCT will hold auditions for the show from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 12 and 6:30 to 9 p.m. Jan. 13 at First United Methodist Church, Fourth and Oak streets in DeKalb.

The show will be presented March 28 through 30 at Sycamore High School.
