With opening night in the books, you’ve only got one more chance to see Luke Fox in his 3rd Parkway Playhouse Junior production as Monkey, Elephant, and Thistle.

PPJR:  Have you made some new friends during rehearsals?
Luke: Yes, I’ve made friends. Kai helps me know when I am supposed to go on stage. She is really nice, helpful, and funny.
PPJR: Who do you hope comes to see Jungle Book KIDS?
Luke: I really hope Mrs. B comes to the show. She is my teacher at school.
PPJR: Do you have a favorite number?
Luke: My favorite part of the show is the Jungle Prologue because I get to do cartwheels! I like to dance and jump and do flips a lot!
PPJR:  How do you think you’ve improved as an actor these past few months?
Luke: I think I have become a better performer because at first I was really nervous and now I am excited and feel good about doing the show.

Luke says he likes all his characters because they are silly like him, so you can see what a great job acting he’s doing here with that serious face!


Rebecca (Luke’s mother) says, “It is always exciting to see your child’s hard work pay off in the end. The staff at Parkway Playhouse are amazing. This is Luke’s third show and every single one has been a fantastic experience for our whole family. We are so fortunate to have them in our community.”


We’d also like to thank all the parents for driving kids to and from rehearsals, running lines and choreography with them at home, and providing support in a variety of ways. We couldn’t do it without such fabulous parents!

Don’t miss your chance to see Luke cartwheeling across the stage. The final performance of Jungle Book KIDS is tonight at 6 pm at Parkway Playhouse. Tickets available at the door.
