4th Annual Children's Workshop - July 14, 2012

The Eunice Players' Theatre sponsored the 4th Annual Children's Workshop with an amazing turnout of kids from the surrounding area! Unfortunately, after 29 kids were accepted, many were turned away at the door. Angie B. McBride conducted this theatre workshop by playing learning games through acting out emotions or objects. Board members came in to show the kids the behind-the-scenes aspect of costumes, make up, and lighting and sound.  We want to thank Angie for the successful Children's Theatre Workshop and we hope to see the kids at our musical, "CAMELOT" to open on July 25!

Guenevere Burning?

Van Reed and Angie B. McBride
"As the dawn filled the sky,

On the day she would die,

There was wonder far and near,

Would Van pull out the fire extenguisher or allow Guenevere to burn?"
