The Antler River Recreation District held their Summer Theatre Camp from July 17 – 27 at Melita Strand Theatre. After arriving at the first day of camp, students were given their scripts for Aladdin Jr. and then were required to audition for roles in the play. After parts were given out, they only had eight short days to get the performance ready for an audience! Not only did the students learn their lines, they also learnt songs and choreography, too. It is truly amazing what these young people were able to learn in such a short amount of time. The final performances of the show were held on Friday, July 26, at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, July 27, at 3:00 p.m. at the Strand Theatre and the students did an amazing job!
