On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant 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.

Come along and listen to the lullaby of Broadway! 42nd Street celebrates Broadway, Times Square and the magic of show biz with wit, humor and pizzazz. At the height of the Great Depression, aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown, PA, and soon lands her first big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Will Peggy be able to step in and become a star? The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including "You're Getting To Be A Habit With Me," "Dames," "We're In the Money," "Lullaby of Broadway," "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" and "Forty-Second Street."

All participants in both options will choose age and skill level when registering.

Level Options:

Beginner - The beginner level will be geared toward participants who are new to theater or have been in 5 or less productions.

Intermediate - The intermediate level will be geared toward participants who have been in 6-15 productions.

Advanced - The advanced level will be geared toward participants who have been in over 15 productions. For dance, they have been actively taking class, and for voice, they are studying privately with a teacher. Prior permission is necessary in order to enroll at the advanced level. Please contact musicaltheatreofanthem@gmail.com to request permission.
