Nearly everyone wants to be a star, right? And, everyone – in his or her own way – can shine brightly. That’s the central message of D.M. Larson’s “To Be a Star.”
The 40-minute play will be presented Aug. 1 and 2 at the Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center as the culminating event of a four-week children’s summer theater camp, conducted by FSCC theater director Allen Twitchell with assistance from FSCC students and staff.
The camp is free to all area youth ages 6 to 17 and runs from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday beginning with introductions and auditions July 8. Speaking roles are available for 26 young actors, but everyone attending the camp will be utilized.
The script is available to read at freedramaplays.blogspot.com/2016/06/to-be-star-play-for-kids-and-best.html.
Enrollment is open by attending the first day of camp July 8. Late enrollees also will be accepted the first week of camp only.
In addition to rehearsing the play, camp participants receive instruction in theater basics and the chance to engage in theater exercises.
Campers are encouraged to bring snacks and indoor activities for a 15- to 20-minute break time each session.
