Coming Soon: World Tales and Tunes Featuring Freddy Carnes

by Erik Weasenforth, Marketing Associate VISTA

This summer, we got a request from Stepping Stone School to bring an exciting program that is half performance and storytelling and the other half teaching and directing. Freddy Carnes will go to 14 Stepping Stone schools, mainly in July,  in two-hour blocks to create a short version of “The Odyssey” and “A Midsummer’s Nights Dream” with 15 children in each hour.  There will be full costumes and props and staging and students will learn short Shakespearean speeches and songs.

Stay tuned for a full report by after I visit World Tales and Tunes in person on June 29th.

P.S. Another favorite summer camp memory of mine is when I was Animation Counselor at a camp in Connecticut last year. My best friend there, who was Video Production Counselor, and I played many intense games of ping pong.
