The show goes on

Despite labour dispute Jungle Book, the Musical will be performed

“It’s just like a reality show when they have to put on an event, —quickly,” said Sarah Wilson, choir director for the Sooke Youth Show Choir.

Wilson made reference to a reality show because of the ongoing labour dispute. The choir will not be able to hold their performances at the EMCS theatre as planned. They have arranged to stage all three of their Jungle Book, the Musicad performances at the Ed Macgregor bandshell.

The performances take place on Friday, June 20 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, June 21 at 7 p.m. and a Sunday, June 22, matinee at 2 p.m.

“Come and see this classic tale of Mowgli and his adventures on the way to the ‘Man-Village,’ meet Baloo the bear, Shere-Kahn, and see King Louie dance.  Thirty children from the Sooke district have been working since January to put on a terrific show, with the traditional Disney classics and some new twists.  Come sing and dance along with us! What a way to start the first official weekend of summer!” said Wilson. “It’s a magical, beautiful, natural surrounding. The kids are excited to be performing in the open air.”

There will be a professional sound system in place and piano, microphones, sound board will all be there. The District of Sooke expedited the permit application to make this possible on such short notice.

And so far the long range forecast is sunny without rain.

Tickets for Jungle Book – the Musical are available at Stick in the Mud, Shoppers Drug Mart, East Sooke Country Store and at the venue.
