I didn't know if we could do a Summer Theater Camp at all this summer due to COVID-19 restrictions. But, we decided to go ahead. We couldn't do my first choice of a show because of fewer applications. However, the show we are doing seems to be a perfect fit for this group.
We have been working hard to give each actor what they need to develop their character as well as learn some new skills. For the older girls, that means giving them real choreography. For the "littles," they may have limited dance moves with mostly gestures. But it has to feel like choreography. For the "middles," they get as many challenges as they can handle. We have been surprised at how well they have done. Our oldest boy really needed more. So I wrote him an entirely new character and gave him a new song to boot.
