SUNNYSIDE — The campers arrived early, all dressed in costumes for the first day of drama camp at the high school auditorium.
Sponsored by the Sunnyside High School Drama Department, the five-day theatrical adventure annually attracts upwards of 100 children.
“This year, 155 kids, from first to ninth grade, showed-up,” noted stage volunteer Cher Morrow.
The youngsters participate in workshops ranging from singing, dancing, acting, props, costumes and other stage crafts, “...while learning that drama is a team sport as well.”
The goal, of course, is to produce a play involving all the actors.
Campers will present their performance of “The Wizard of Oz” for families at 12:30 p.m. Friday, June 21.
