"Theatre, visual arts, and music students have combined their talents to bring this performance to Livingston Parish audiences. As a theatre teacher, I strive to help my students learn all aspects of theatre. This includes technical and crew work, as well as acting. The actors in this performance are in first grade to high school freshmen, with technical staff positions provided by high school students. The Lion King Jr. has been a wonderful experience for all of us," said Melani Glascock, director of the Livingston Parish Talented Arts Program.

The Livingston Parish Talented Arts Program contains around 60 students. Directors for the show are Doyle High School senior, Chase Crane, and Springfield High School senior, Shelby Chandler.

For the past 17 years, the teachers and students in the Talented Arts Program have put on shows such as Annie Jr., Fiddler on the Roof Jr., Grease, Charlotte's Web, and many other performances, recitals, and art shows.
