Kids On Stage, Summer Mini-Camp

Our first Mini-Camp of the 2009 summer was a great success! Kids On Stage was attended by 12 wonderful 4-6 year olds. They worked very hard on all aspects of a play. We started by learning what a theatre is and about different terms used in theatre. We had a tour of the Paramount Theater and got to go back stage to see the dressing rooms, orchestra pit, and wings. Then, we walked across the stage!

The children painted their own back drop for the setting of the play, made their costumes and some of the props. We practiced lines and blocking for two days and on day three, our audience came to view the kids' hard work!

It was a wonderful performance! Good job and congratulations to the members of the cast for Kids On Stage, session I!
