April 29, 2008

MONT ALTO, Pa. - Penn State Mont Alto theater students will host a program for preschoolers on Wednesday from 11:10 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. at the Waynesboro YMCA.

For years, students in the theater program at Penn State Mont Alto have performed educational puppet shows and creative dramas for the preschoolers.

This year, the performances include shows that teach the children street safety, stranger safety and how to eat right.

The creative dramas also consist of colors and shapes, dental care, manners, sign language, and fire safety.

All of the students' puppet shows are educational, but in a fun way.

"The creativity in all of the performances is astounding," said Nancy Funk, assistant professor in arts and humanities and advisor of the theater program. "The students in the acting classes have been practicing for weeks to make sure that the children have an awesome time and will enjoy what they will be learning."
