THE JUNGLE IS JUMPIN’ AS
BERGEN ARTS AND SCIENCE CHARTER SCHOOL
PEFORM “DISNEY’S THE JUNGLE BOOK KIDS”
MARCH 3RD & 4TH
Garfield, NJ,– Garfield citizens will be grooving to an awesome jungle beat when Bergen Arts and Science Charter Elementary School presents its production of Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS on Friday and Saturday, March 3rd and 4th.
The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS. Specially adapted from the classic Disney animated film, Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS tells the story of the man-cub Mowgli and his adventure through the jungle on his way to the man-village. Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, the man-cub, Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a big bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.
Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS reminds us the importance of friendship and community. Mowgli doesn’t think he needs anyone’s help, he can survive in the jungle all alone, but its only with the help of his friend Bagherra and all the other jungle animals he meets along that way that he is finally able to defeat Shere Khan. Similarly, these Bergen Arts and Science Charter School students, who all have different strengths and interest, have worked together to offer their own unique interpretation of this musical to your community. We hope you will join us in applauding them for all their creativity and teamwork. 50 of our 2nd and 3rd grade students have been moving and grooving since October to make this show help you “forget about your worries and your strife!” “Trust in Me,” you will not want to miss this performance!!!
