The Jungle Book production - Hurstpierpoint College

The Jungle Book production

For the past term and a half, members of the Year 8 Drama Club have been rehearsing for a studio performance of The Jungle Book.

Throughout the process pupils regularly contributed their own suggestions and ideas, leading to a very collaborative final piece. With elements of animal studies, live percussion, and detailed characterisation throughout, their performance and teamwork skills were continually stretched and challenged.

With two evening performances in the Drama Studio – a more intimate setting that offered various new challenges – members of the cast were given a valuable opportunity to work in a space other than the New Bury Theatre.

There was a real company atmosphere throughout the rehearsal process, which was reflected in their excellent final performances.
