Lift Mount Pisgah through Pendragon Performance

PRESS RELEASE: To give back to a community that has supported Pendragon Theatre for the past 30 years, Pendragon Theatre founders Bob Pettee and Susan Neal will donate 20 percent of the box office from the June 12th performance of Jungle Book performance to benefit Lift Mount Pisgah.

Pettee states, “Pendragon Theatre wants to be able to do what we can to support a well-rounded child. Lift Mount Pisgah supports that philosophy through its continued efforts to provide a year-round outdoor recreational facility. At Pendragon, we nurture the arts through our theatre programming, performance tours and educational involvement. We hope people will come to the theatre on June 12th and show their support for Lift Mount Pisgah.”
The script is an adaptation of the Kipling stories and contains all the favorite characters: Mowgli and the wolf pack, Baloo, Bagheera, Kaa, Shere Khan, the monkeys and more. Director Kent Streed has done extensive research on Indian culture, and music melding this with creative use of costume and puppets to create a very engaging telling of the “man cub’s” story. The cast includes: Silas Swanson, Brandon Patterson, Leslie Dame, Clare Paulson, Jason Amrhein, Scott Eichholz, Donna Moschek, and Chris McGovern.

Recently Lift Mount Pisgah received a $600,000 grant from the state Environmental Protection fund though it still falls short of its $850,000 goal. The grant and fundraising efforts will be used to replace the existing 1940 era T-bar while developing a trail system for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking and running with some dedicated handicapped accessible paths.

Tickets for Jungle Book are $10.00 for anyone 15 and older or $8.00 for anyone under 15.
