Kitsap Children’s Musical Theater – Opening Weekend!

wsslogojblogThis weekend is the opening weekend of the two newest productions of the Kitsap Children’s Muscial Theater: The Jungle Book and West Side Story.

For the past three months nearly 150 local children  (representing 18 schools in Central and North Kitsap) have been singing and dancing and rehearsing lines all in preparation for their upcoming performances over the next several weeks.

 If you have had the pleasure of seeing a past production by KCMT, you know the treat that is in store for play-goers this weekend! If you have NOT had the opportunity to see one of KCMT’s plays, I encourage you to — go!!!

O.K. I’ll be honest. I do have a personal interest. My daughter, Olivia, will be busy buzzing as a very important Jungle Book bee… and will even try to sting Sheer Khan with her other bee friends. Oooh, scary!

Oh people. The kids are adorable! A-to-the-DORABLE! All the singing and dancing and… the costumes! This picture is just a glimpse:

So, if you are wondering what on earth you might do this weekend – take the family to a play! You have two to choose from – or you can even take in both! Click here to get information on performance dates and times, and how to get tickets. On the KCMT home page you can spend some time clicking around. Learn more about this all-volunteer program. Perhaps you have a child that might like to dip a toe into the field of drama! Check them out.

I sure hope to see you there. Also, if you get a chance – bring a few friends along and help fill that auditorium so those hard-working kiddos can experience a full house!
