Actor Spotlight: Ben Deyton

Adeline Sharp, Ben Deyton and Aaron Neighbors (helper) rehearse Jungle Book KIDS
This is Ben’s first production with Parkway Playhouse Junior, so we know he’s excited about this weekend!
PPJR: Do you have a favorite song in Jungle Book KIDS?
Ben:  My favorite song is “Trust in Me” because that one has my favorite actions, like the “sleep, sleep,” “shhh! shhh!” and when my head goes “around and around and around and around.”
PPJR: Who do you hope comes to see the show?
Ben:  I hope my mom, dad,  grandma, grandpa, mamaw, papaw, my brothers, Luke, Jake*, Zeke……oh, and my cousins, Jess, Alli, Steven, and Emily!
We hope you take the time to join Ben’s extended family at the show and enjoy the great choreography in the song “Trust in Me.”  Trust us, you’ll be glad you came!
