Church to hold performing arts workshop for youth
YOUNGSVILLE — A five-day performing arts workshop will be held at the Youngsville Free Methodist Church from July 20-24.
With the help of trained drama instructors, young people ages 8-15 will explore acting, singing and dance in a Christian environment.
Due to COVID-19, safety measures will be taken throughout the workshop week, including daily temperature checks, wearing masks and physical distancing.
“We are following government health guidelines to protect all the kids,” says Rodney Coe of Family Life. “That’s our number one priority — that kids can have a great time and learn more about theater in a safe, positive place.”
This year, the workshop will culminate with a performance called “Back to the Beginning” — a mini-musical production that engages kids in the story of creation.
“The kids really come alive from the first day of the workshop to the last,” Coe said. “It’s incredible to watch their creativity soar as they develop characters and participate in the whole process.”
Sessions are every morning of the workshop week, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with a musical performance given for friends and family on the final day of class.
Registration is $99 a student and $85 for each additional sibling. To register, call 800-927-9083 or visit www.fln.org/events. A limit of 60 students will be accepted. Youngsville Free Methodist is located at 179 Davis St., Youngsville.
