There are no dull kids in this production, but the three Sharp siblings are on pins and needles awaiting the opening of Jungle Book KIDS this weekend! Beckhem (8), Eliot (6) and Adeline (4) have been working hard during tech week to put the finishing touches on the show. Let’s check in with them as they get ready.
PPJR: Are you like your character or are you very different?
Beckhem Sharp: I’m like Mogli because I’m adventurous.
PPJR: Do you have a favorite part in the show?
Adeline Sharp: I like the very beginning when it’s almost time for me to start singing. I like to dance!
PPJR: What do you think your family and friends will like about watching the show?
Eliot Sharp: Everyone will love watching me catch Shere Khan. I have a line all by myself!
He’s not the only one who’s enjoyed the class… James Sharp, dad to these three
characters actors, has this to add: “I enjoy watching my kids begin each show sheepishly reading lines, or singing along, and gradually speaking more clearly, loudly, and confidently throughout the rehearsal process. It seems that a little bit more of the ‘onstage’ confidence shows itself after each show.”
We’re confident it’s going to be a great show. See you there!
