    way to give the younger actors a chance to take on leadroles in the iconic childrens classic tale.

    Rick Wilson, CEO of the musical theater group, saidthis move will groom the younger performers to takeon more prominent roles in future productions.

    For 13 years, EDMT hasbeen training actors,singers and dancers for

    stage productions.Andrew Wilson, son ofthe CEO, has taken onassociate director dutiesto help mentor theyounger performers. At18, Andrew has been in 40different EDMT produc-

    tions over the last decade. He is best known for hisroles as Captain Hook in Peter Pan, Gaston in Beau-ty and the Beast, Cat in the Hat in Seussical the Musi-cal, and most recently as Professor Harold Hill in TheMusic Man.

    Debbie Wilson, Ricks sister, is the director. Mean-while, her daughter, 17-year-old Anjie Wilson, is takingon the mentor role of assistant choreographer. With 44shows under her belt, Anjie is no novice.

    Part of the philosophy behind El Dorado MusicalTheatre is that all the cast members help and supportone another, said Rick. This is especially true of theolder performers looking out for the little ones. Anjieand Andrew spending their summer working with thecast of The Jungle Book is an example of that philos-ophy.

    The show is handled by two casts, dubbed Fireand Rain, comprising 65 actors each.

    Its a wonderful opportunity to flip the flows soinstead of learning everything, were creatingeverything to be seen on the stage, Andrew said,referring to his chance to be associate director.Im learning so much more. Were trying to keepthe show modern. Its a nice fresh take.

    In keeping with the modern theme, you wontfind actors donning monkey suits.

    We dont have people in animal costumes, hesaid. Theyre suggestions of the animals they areplaying. It wont be full face makeup.

    Folsom resident Stephen Knoble, 14, is lookingforward to his turn in the spotlight as Baloo.

    This is my first big role, he said. Ive done shows

    with some of the older kids and Ive had some partshere and there but I havent had the biggest amount oflines. With Baloo, (the character) goes back to(author) Rudyard Kipling and its different than the(Disney) movie. Its fun to be able to do something dif-ferent this time.

    Stephen said he appreciates being able to learn fromthe mentors.

    Ive learned a lot from Andrew, he said. They (thementors) are anamazing help.

    El Dorado Hillsresident KyraSchneider, 14, istaking on the roleof Bagheera.

    This is my sev-enth show withEDMT, she said. Iwas 11 when Istarted in 2011 inthe ensemble. Atthat point, I didnt know what it was like to be a lead.Its a lot different to be the lead. You have to thinkabout character development and the back story ofyour character. In the ensemble, you dont have all thelines and you dont have to think about the storybehind the lines.

    Another twist for Kyra?I have t
