Pierce Freelon Emily KHip hop artist Pierce Freelon offers some inspiring words to the Emily K Center performers
The Emily K Center invites you to a special performance this weekend by their drama camp students.
They'll present a one-hour adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book this Friday and Saturday at the Emily K Center, 904 W. Chapel Hill St. The performances are the culmination of the hard work put in by the students at the Center's two-week drama camp for children ages 7-14, which is run by The Justice Theater Project and has been for the past six years.
As a part of the curriculum in the drama camp, students took yoga classes in the morning, along with singing and acting classes. They also took art classes where they made the costumes for the show out of recycled materials. In the afternoons, the students rehearsed for the show, led in the dance routines by choreographer Freddie Lee Heath.
Even if you're not the jungle VIP, no worries. The performances are free and open to the public. The shows start at 7:30 pm. For more information, call 680-0308, ext. 1006, or click here.
