Travel to jungle with student production

Two performances on July 21

Experience the classical story of Disney's production of "The Jungle Book" as the White Salmon Valley Drama Department transports you to the jungles of India.

Jennifer Graves is directing a talented group of actors and actresses from the community. Morgan Graves is playing Mowgli; Rebecca Wolf, Baloo the Bear' Eliza Durkee-Neumen, Bagheera the Black Panther; Sebastian Mael, the swinging King Louie; and Cody Hipskind, the villainous Tiger Shere Kahn.

A supporting cast of bees, rocks, trees, flowers, prickly pears, monkeys, elephants, snake coils, vultures, wolves, and villagers add to the music and mischief.

The setting was artfully rendered by Megan Hanks, artist in residence Janet Essley and the White Salmon Valley Drama Department, as well as set props designed by Doug Avon and his students at Project Summer Fun.

The entire camp was made possible by a grant from the PTO.

There will be two performances of the play on Thursday, July 21. The first at 10 a.m., and the second one at 6:30 p.m.

The first show benefits the can food drive; admittance is a donation of can food, all of which goes to the food bank.

The second show's earnings go to the White Salmon Valley Drama Department, helping to fund its winter show.

Performance will be at Henkle Middle School and the cost is $3 for children and $4 for adults.
