In Their Own Words

by Brian C. Fahey, TAP in the Classroom Program Director

Campers had fun learning about different countries through art, theatre, and dance- at All The World’s a Stage

Campers from  Theatre Action Project’s All the Worlds Stage Camp, which just wrapped up at the Circle C Community Center, shared their thoughts on summer camp.

What does TAP camp mean to you?

  • Having fun in drama class! – Cole, Age 6
  • Learning dances – Abby, Age 6
  • Writing every aspect of a play – Maverick, Age 9

What have you learned this week?

  • I learned about traditional Indian dance and stories from the Indian culture – Sophie, Age 8
  • How to put together a play. You have to make the set and you have to write the story. There has to be characters and there should be a problem. That’s what makes it interesting! – Eliza, Age 6
  • I learned about Zomo the Rabbit, a trickster from a country called Africa – Cole, Age 6

Why should other kids your age come to TAP camp?

  • They should come if they want to have fun!  – Cole, Age 6
  • They should come if they like costumes. We got to make ours.  – Kalen, Age 5
