DeKALB – Children’s Community Theatre invites children ages 7 to 17 to audition for its spring production of Disney’s “Jungle Book.”

The show, based upon Disney’s animated version of a Rudyard Kipling tale, tells the story of a young boy, Mowgli, raised in the jungle by a family of wolves. The cast of characters features the fearsome man-eating tiger Shere Khan, the sinister python Kaa, the hipster orangutan King Louie, Mowgli’s protector, the panther Bagheera, and his best friend, Baloo the bear. A jungle full of characters rounds out the cast, including elephants, monkeys, vultures and more.

CCT will hold auditions from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12, and 6:30 to 9 p.m., Monday, Jan. 13, at the First United Methodist Church, Fourth and Oak streets in DeKalb.

The show will be presented March 28 through 30 at Sycamore High School.
