Union Street Players will once again be holding summer drama camps for children. The camps will run July 30th through August 3rd at the Pella Community Center, 712 Union Street. Brystal Hopkins will lead the morning session for students who have just completed kindergarten through 4th grade, and Suzi Jones will lead the afternoon session for students in grades 5-8. The morning session runs from 8:30 am until 11:30 am and the afternoon runs from 12:30 pm until 3:30 pm. On Friday August 3rd a performance for family and friends will be held at 6:30 pm.
Registration forms can also be picked up at the Community Center office. Interested parties can also contact Brystal Hopkins at email@example.com, Suzi Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail completed registrations to 503 Washington, Pella, Iowa 50219. Both camps will work on developing theatre skills through activities involving movement, voice and storytelling. “A great thing about developing theatre skills is that students are also building skills for communication, cooperation and creativity,” said Suzi Jones. “Those are skills that are directly transferable to the classroom at any age.” Families are encouraged to register soon as classes have been filled to capacity in previous summers.
