After doing 2 weeks of day camps in Del Valle, helping with the Summer Pageant in the Park, 5 weeks of Theatre Action Project (TAP) Summer Camps at Trinity Methodist and 3 weeks of “World Tales and Tunes” at Stepping Stone Schools in Central Texas I was exhausted. Not because I didn’t have a fun and amazing summer, but because teaching and performing is so physical.
My favorite memories from this summer include:
- Seeing campers sing “True Colors” and “One Heart” during “Songs for the Stage“,
- Seeing the kids really get into putting on costumes for “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream”,
- Playing “Here Comes the Sun” for the Summer Pageant, and
- Setting up the backdrop 4 times each week of camp at Trinity.
I feel so lucky to work with such passionate and dedicated staff. We should all pat ourselves on the back for such an amazing summer!
P.S. My only memory of the first day of school was 1st grade. I stopped halfway walking to school and was met by my 1st grade teacher and my mom trying to convince me that school would be fun, and it was.
