GREENSBORO, N.C. -- "The Jungle Book Kids" is for kids and by kids... and Weaver Academy senior Meredith Vaughn is the face behind much of the work.

This version, which is put on by the Community Theatre of Greensboro, is choreographed by Vaughn.

"It is really cool, but it's also kind of a humbling experience because like when you try to put it in layman's terms you're like 'Wow, this is a hard concept to interpret to these people who have maybe never experienced this or never seen it before," she said.

She's taken dance since elementary school and around that time, she learned about CTG.

Now, the student received experiences through the theatre's Student-Directed Project Program.

"I have always wanted to choreograph and I never really got the opportunity until I was able to choreograph for Winnie the Pooh Kids which was two years ago and it really allowed me to explore that as a different art form explore being a leader with dance and explore like working with children," Vaughn said.

While she's passionate about the arts, she plans to pursue a career in engineering.
