LISBON – Families and friends of third- and fourth-grade Drama Club students and fifth- and sixth-grade Jungle Band performers at Lisbon Community School journeyed into a “jungle” on Feb. 9, 10 and 11.

The stage was transformed into a theatrical learning environment for cast and crew of this year’s production of Disney’s “The Jungle Book.”

“Students enthusiastically embraced the lessons in friendship and the importance of the bare necessities in life,” said the show’s producer, Monica Millhime.

Students engaged in song and dance under the voice and stage savvy of music and artistic director Laurie Adams, a third-grade teacher at school.

Students from all classes were invited to the in-school performances. All three shows were sold out, accommodating the cast and crew, family, friends, and residents of the community.
