Actor Spotlight: James Grant

baloo 2James Grant is Baloo.  Whether he is like his character or not, he says he just IS Baloo….because Baloo likes naps…. and music…. and is just all around fun. And although there are a lot of great songs in Jungle Book KIDS, it’s hard to beat “Bear Necessities” for fun!

You know you want to join in the fun, too!


If you and your family enjoy that performance, may we recommend the our next show Into the Woods Jr. performed by our older Parkway Playhouse Junior Students. Keep your eyes open for more Actor Profiles coming up!

Think your child might be inspired to join the party on stage?  Here’s the next opportunity. Registration is open.

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
