Summer Student Blog Entry July 12: I’ll Make a Camper out of You

GUYS, I’M SO EXCITED!

With the youth drama camps commencing tomorrow, I can’t wait to return to the world of theatre. It has been a while since I have been involved in the drama aspect of the arts, and I am excited to get back into it!

I was very involved in musical theatre in my younger years. I found that it was a great way to express myself, and to get involved with my community. I made so many great friends, and it was a valuable opportunity to grow and become a more confident individual. I hope the drama camps will allow the children to develop skills and confidence that they can bring with them in their everyday lives.

I admit I may live vicariously through the children this week, as Charlotte’s Web is one of my favourite children’s stories, and I never had the chance to perform it!

I may have no experience with Charlotte’s Web, however, I did play a cat in a musical once, that’s close enough right?

With all of the fun activities Ally has planned, the children are sure to have an incredible experience!

I know I will be singing and dancing along with all of them. I may not sound great, but fun is the only thing that matters (and I know the children will make up for my bad singing)!

I’m excited for the next few weeks of adventure! It will be a great experience for everyone involved.

Cheers,

Meredith
