CMA Stages Annual Kids’ Drama Camps

WINTERSVILLE — The Center of Music and Art will hold its annual Summer Drama Camps for children this month.

For more than 25 years, the center has been offering these camps to area children. Students spend the week learning about stage presence, performance techniques and everything needed to put on a show. At the end of the camp, students present their musical performance to family and friends.

Monday through Saturday will be the camp for children completing grades 4-8. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year’s show is titled “Adventures of a Comic Book Artist” and will take place ay 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

The play is an action-packed spoof of the comic book genre complete with hysterical singing superheroes and dancing villains. Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist and create heroes and villains for the comic books he loves so much. As the janitor at Wonder Comics, he anxiously awaits the day that his boss, D.C. Wunderman, will see his drawings and give him the chance to have his superheroes come alive on the printed page.

For children completing kindergarten through third grade, camp will take place from 9 a.m . to noon July 23-27. The show, “Barnyard Moosical,” will take place at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
