June 24, 2005

WARFORDSBURG, Pa. ? Thanks to a grant from the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts, a group of actor and actress hopefuls will have the opportunity to try their hand at musical theater.

The Southern Fulton School District has been running a Summer Theater Camp for students in grades six through 12 since June 16. Thirty-two student performers and stage crew are learning the fundamentals of acting, stage direction, lighting, scenery design/construction, costuming and performance, according to a news release.

These students are working on an abbreviated version of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic, "The Pirates of Penzance," which will be performed for the public on Tuesday and Wednesday. Both performances will begin at 7 p.m. in the Southern Fulton High School auditorium. Admission is $2.

The grant for the theater camp was written by Carolyn Mottern, the district's art teacher. Southern Fulton Vocal Director Dan Meredith and high school teacher Judy Schriver are working with the students.

The students have been working daily on lines, songs, blocking and more, Mottern said. The students were given the scripts on the first day of camp and after only eight days of rehearsal, they will be showing it to the public, Mottern said.

The doors will open for both performances at 6:30 p.m.
