Metro Arts theater Company
Would you like to be a member of Metro Arts’
Theater Company? You can be in the Metro
Arts spring Production of A Jungle Book by invitation
if you sign up for our classes, or audition
for us this coming winter. We’re looking for enthusiastic,
talented young performers to help
us with our re-telling of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved
story. Who will be our Mowgli, Bagheera,
or Baloo? There are many other characters just
waiting to be cast, so be part of our growing
theater department and let the fun begin!


Theater 101                                              Ages: 6 - 10
Your child will learn theater basics, enjoy some
theater games and get up on the stage to put
on a show for friends and family on the last day
of class. We will focus on theater teamwork, theater
etiquette and the fundamentals of acting.
Familiarity with nursery rhymes is a plus. We will
provide you with a fun reading list to help get
your child ready for some creative stage fun.
