The Jungle Book Show Comes to BAAY

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Join Mowgli, Baloo, King Louie of the Apes, and the rest of the gang with a performance by Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth students in the classic musical and Disney hit, “The Jungle Book,” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 27-29, at BAAY Theatre, 1059 N. State St. Lisa Markowitz directs and choreographs this surprisingly polished youth production.

Watch the cast of BAAY students, ages 9-12, as they sing, dance and act in the adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s stories.The musical starts with Mowgli, a young orphan boy, who is found in a basket in the deep jungles of India by Bagheera, a black panther who promptly takes him to a mother wolf who has just had cubs. She raises him along with her own cubs and Mowgli soon becomes well-acquainted with jungle life. Mowgli is shown 10 years later, playing with his wolf siblings. We follow his adventures as he meets various characters of the jungle and learns to include and be included in this vast family.

There is a pre-show Gala at 6 pm before Saturday’s performance with food and drinks, by donation.

Tickets are $10; free ages 5 and younger. Tickets available at the door or at

General Info About Play Auditions at BAAY

Auditions at BAAY

Our theatre audition process is very nurturing. Pixie Theatre kids (ages 5/6 and 7/8) don’t truly ‘audition’.  We get to know them during the rehearsal process, find out what roles they are interested in and then cast those shows. For ages 9 and above, we do hold auditions. We try to make it a supportive and non-stressful situation. The kids have some time to mix and meet a bit in the beginning. We’ll do general announcements, then some kind of icebreaker. Read More
