CHURCH HILL — Tal­ented lo­cal young­sters prom­ise to en­ter­tain au­di­ences of all ages in per­for­mances of Dis­ney’s “The Jungle Book, Kids” and “Bugsy Malone, Jr.” at Church Hill Theatre from Thurs­day, July 21, through Sun­day, July 24.

Dis­ney’s “The Jungle Book, Kids” is adapted for chil­dren from the clas­sic Dis­ney Film. “Bugsy Malone, Jr.,” based on a 1976 movie fa­vorite star­ring Scott Baio and Jodi Foster, is a rol­lick­ing spoof of 1920s gang­ster films with mu­sic by the com­poser of “The Mup­pet Movie.”

Becca Van Aken di­rects younger per­form­ers in Dis­ney’s “The Jungle Book, Kids,” and Liz Clarke di­rects the mid­dle and high school­ers in “Bugsy Malone, Jr.”

In­terns Shan­non Whitaker and Iz Clemens will as­sist the di­rec­tors and Nina Sharp, previous GRG in­struc­tor and ex­ec­u­tive man­ager of CHT, pro­vides over­all tech­ni­cal sup­port. Many par­ents and other vol­un­teers helped with cos­tumes, sets and props.

Be­cause last year’s shows were sold out, Church Hill Theatre has added a fourth 2016 per­for­mance. Shows will be at 7 p.m. Thurs­day, July 21, and Fri­day, July 22. There will be mati­nee per­for­mances at 2 p.m. Satur­day, July 23, and Sun­day, July 24.
