Directed by instructor Jene Rebbin Shaw, Summer Stock KIDS is a two-week summer theatre camp for boys and girls ages 8 - 13 which culminates in a production that is totally produced by Jene and the kids - sets, costumes and props. Each day, the children participate in fun, imaginative theatre exercises which help to develop vocal and movement techniques necessary for creating their character role in the play. From auditions through rehearsals to the performances, students learn to perform with confidence and energy, and discover the importance of working as an ensemble. The challenges are great but, oh, so rewarding for the young performers as well as family and friends. Previous Summer Stock KIDS productions include: If the Shoe Fits; The Adventures of Rose Red; Snow Queen; The Jungle Book; Charlotte’s Web; Stuart Little; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe; The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe; The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz.
Summer Stock KIDS is sponsored by Ted and Sandy Tozer.

Students come together to tell the incredible tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves. With the help of his friends — the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera and the python Kaa — Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle. Danger threatens as well, for the jungle is the home of Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger who has vowed to destroy Mowgli. Mowgli must use all his strength and courage to stop Shere Khan before it is too late. A tale of friendship, loyalty, morality, and adventure, with plenty of fun as well, this faithful adaptation provides many fantastic characters for young actors to take on. Students learn about all aspects of theatre, further explore the play, and develop their characters by creating their own simple props and costume items.
