Paso High Students Present ‘The Jungle Book KIDS’

To finish its season, Paso Robles High School’s drama department will present two shows: Disney’s “The Jungle Book KIDS” and “The Sound of Music.”

“The children’s musical is special because my intermediate drama class will perform it for over 60 classes in our school district as a field trip and will expose almost 2,000 students to theater,” Paso Robles High School Director of Theatre Arts Marcy Goodnow said.

The drama department will perform during its fourth period on block days to elementary and middle schools that travel to the Performing Arts Center at Paso Robles High School.

“We did ‘James and the Giant Peach Jr.’ last year and it was a huge success,” Goodnow said, adding that she chose “The Jungle Book KIDS” because it follows the cartoon version and includes a lot of singing and dancing. She said the musical has a jazzy beat and features colorful characters, as well as favorite songs from the movie.

Goodnow is the director for the show with Aimee Ware as the vocal director and choreographed by student Cassidy LeClair.

The show will run Thursday, Feb. 15 through Thursday, March 8. There will be four performances of the children’s musical open to the public. They will be held on March 2 and 3 at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center at Paso Robles High School. Tickets are $5 each and are available at PRHSDrama.com.
