R.O.A.D.S. Program Presents the Jungle Book

R.O.A.D.S.+Program+Presents+the+Jungle+Book

Oceanside CA— Members of the Oceanside Boys and Girls Clubs , Real Options for Adults with Disabilities (R.O.A.D.S) program presented a special performance of The Jungle Book on Friday at the Oceanside Elks Lodge.
The philosophy of R.O.A.D.’S is that with adequate support, individuals can move beyond their disability to make appropriate lifestyle choices and develop better communication, living, and working skills.
The plays director, Debbie Mecias said the play ‘Jungle Book’ was chosen because it was funny, not gender specific with lots of animals and most of the cast knew the words by heart. “The hardest part was trying to keep them focused and not breaking out laughing at the script during rehearsals.” Debbie said.
“We worked really hard on this” said Michael Baker who played Mowgli. “I wasn’t nervous at all” exclaimed Austin Staack, who played the part of King Louie. “The costume designers did a great job and the experience was awesome.” Austin added.
Mecias said the group plans another production for, hopefully, later this year.
