Our theater division (formerly known as Take Two Children’s Theatre) is a theater for children performed by children ages five to eighteen! We believe that different age groups can work together to create a high-quality production. Our young actors and actresses work together while learning stage directions, voice projection, fluency, and movement all while they bring the magic to life on stage come opening night! Most auditions, rehearsals, and performances take place at Glenview United Methodist Church in Glenview, IL. It's easily accessible from the North and Northwest Suburbs in Cook and Lake Counties. Our young actors come from throughout North Chicago and the North Shore suburbs.
Performers ages 5-18 are encouraged register for Jungle Book KIDS!
All actors and actresses interested in joining the musical production must register by or on February 11th. The performers will audition within the first two weeks of rehearsals and everyone will be assigned a role. You won’t want to miss your chance to be a part of this fan-favorite jungle adventure musical!
