Last week, Grace Freeman directed a children’s theatre arts camp at the library. During this weeklong camp, participants learned about many aspects of the theatre including creating and following a story arc, stage presence, improvisation, singing and dancing. The camp goers wrote their own show and presented it Friday night at Burnham Hall. What amazing, talented kids we have in our community. Thank you, Grace for an amazingly fun week. Jacob had a wonderful time!
