(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Acting Up performing arts summer camp has announced they’ll perform “Hairspray Junior.”
The three-week-long camp, which features LRHS student volunteers who work with community youngsters, begins June 10, and runs 9am-4pm daily.
Anyone from the ages of 5 to incoming freshman are eligible to participate in this camp. The camp offers all things theatre and the kids who join the camp get the chance to learn and be in the play. During their free time they create arts and crafts which are featured during the play.
There are two scheduled performances for parents and families.
LRHS Junior Bella Guzman looks forward to the camp every year, “I think the camp is such an awesome opportunity, I love working with kids of all ages, you really get to see the performers grow as they come year after year.”
The counselors teach the kids the play and rehearse with them, during this process. Mustang volunteers can earn over 100 volunteer hours.
“I’ve been doing this camp since my freshman year and every year it gets better and better. I love teaching the kids my passion and seeing them grow to love theatre as much as I do,” said senior Melina Cuffaro.
LRHS drama adviser Roxane Caravan is the director of the camp. She’s done this show before and always adds a little twist to the story line.
