Summer Drama Camps
Our 2016 theme is SMALL-SCALE HEROES! This summer, our Lifeline campers will adapt and perform stories about adventurous insects and bold little bugs! With DRAMA KIDS, we’ll adapt two different stories: Two Bad Ants, by Chris Van Allsburg (Session 1), and Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock, a folk tale retold by Eric A. Kimmel (Session 2). With DRAMA STARS, we’ll have fun recreating the world of Crickwing, by Janell Cannon. All three programs culminate in a special performance for family and friends on the final day.
