After weeks of rehearsals, Kids-N-Co. will debut their 2016 Summer Theatre Camp production: What the Moon Saw this weekend.
The classic stories of Hans Christian Andersen come to life in this production, created and performed by the KNC campers. Stories include The Fir Tree, What the Moon Saw and the The Snow Queen, which was the basis for the Disney film Frozen.
During the KNC production camp, students learn all aspects of theater, acting, costume and behind-the-scenes work with tech. Young adults serve as interns to lead the students during rehearsals and help write the show.
Student director/intern Anthony Muñoz, currently a high school student at DaVinci School for Science and the Arts, said about his experience, “It really has been fun working with this talented group of kids.”
UTEP student Emily James agreed, “The kids have been working really hard to put this show together.”
Camp Director Austin Savage is impressed by the efforts of all involved, “In a transitional period and facing some adversity, the kids have responded with great joy and passion and I could not be more impressed by the patience, care, and talent that the interns have demonstrated. The show is going to be beautiful because it is a reflection of them and the care they have for theatre and the campers.”
The shows begin at 7 p.m. July 8 & 9, and at 2:30 p.m. July 10, at the First Presbyterian Church, 1340 Murchison. Tickets are $5-$7, available at the door.
