Young thespians learned some new techniques from high school theater veterans.
McDowell High School put on a theater camp this weekend for kids ages six to fourteen.
This year saw the biggest turnout in all eight years, with about 120 rising actors.
They practiced new songs and learned some choreography on stage. What made this camp so effective was the mentorship of older students.
"It's a great opportunity for our students to share what they've learned over the years with a track of performing arts courses," said Mike Malthaner, Director of the Center for Performing Arts.
Senior Jocelyn Grove helped teach the camp both this year and last year."Being able to help instill that in them when they're so young- I know that's what I had when I was younger," she said, "and I want them to be able to have that as well."
