Summer Dragons was amazing! This year, we did something a bit different, though. The actors received their scripts and predetermined parts at the pre-camp meeting, instead of on the first day of camp. This gave them a bit more time to prepare their characters. We had five new students this year, two of whom had minimal acting experience. By the end of the week, though, we had broken their fear of the stage and increased their acting abilities immensely.
The show we performed was called Kingdom’s Err. It’s a mishmash of several different stories, including Les Miserables, The Three Musketeers, Robin Hood, Snow White, Sherlock Holmes, and more. The script was written by one of my students, Tyler Appleby, who also assisted me in directing and producing the show.
All of my actors this year outdid themselves, bringing everything they had to their characters. I am very proud of them.
