Disney's The Jungle Book

CMT Rising Stars (ages 6-9)

Show Dates: Thursday, August 7 - Sunday, August 10, 2014

Our favorite show of the year! Each summer, our Junior Talents (ages 6-9) teach the rest of us how it’s done! This season, we’re thrilled to watch our youngest performers open up The Jungle Book, a fantastic adaptation of the 1967 Disney film. Watch the jungle come to life with Jumpin’ Jive and Jazz, as our hero Mowgli, the orphan raised by wolves, encounters other beloved characters like fun-loving Baloo, groovy King Louie, and protective Bagheera. With all of our favorite songs from the film like “I Wanna Be Like You” and “The Bare Necessities,” come see the newest generation of CMT performers lead us through the jungle and into the future!

Walt Disney animated the original writings by Rudyard Kipling.

Michelle Morgan, Director and Choreographer

One of the biggest joys for her is being able to see the little actors who were six years old in Rugrats (2010), now all grown up as poised, confident nine-year-olds who have a great love of theater. Also, she loves being able to see opening night when all of the newcomers take the stage for their very first time. Michelle’s directing, choreography and collaboration credits include Rapunzel, The Velveteen Rabbit, Rugrats, 101 Dalmatians, Charlotte’s Web, Heidi, Annie, Seussical, Three and a Half Musketeers, Dames at Sea, Good News, Disco Island, Oklahoma, Forever Broadway, and more. As well as CMT, Michelle has also choreographed for West Valley Light Opera, Sunnyvale Community Players, and the City of Gilroy. Some favorite past performing credits include When You Wish, Ragtime, West Side Story, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Will Rogers Follies, The Music Man, Sweet Charity, and Guys and Dolls. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Critical Research in Elementary Education and her teaching credential from San Jose State University. During the day, she teaches at Eaton Elementary in the Cupertino Union School District.
