NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA)-- Imagine learning an entire musical in just one week, some young theater enthusiasts are doing just that in Union County.
The Tallehatchie River Players are the sponsors of the annual theater camps. During the one-week camp, 2nd-9th graders learn all about the world of theater. They learn a song and dance a day as well as work at memorizing lines.
The theme of this years' camp is Aladdin and for some children like Rosalee Roberts, the camp has been a great tool in helping her to overcome fears like stage fright.
"It's actually pretty great- It just teaches us how to dance and sing and how to be in the theater," said Rosalee.
Camp Director Natalie Bullard says she's lead the camp in New Albany for three years now and she is really excited about this years' group.
"We are taking a magic carpet ride to Arabian nights and it's going to feature not only my kids but my instructors to help them out through the week. We rotate them through classes of dance and acting skills," said Bullard.
If you'd like to see the theater camp's production of Aladdin they will be performing Friday, July 12 at 6:00 p.m. at the Magnolia Civic Center in New Albany.
