Troy University focused its Summer Spotlight Creative Drama Camp on 84 children ages 4 – 13, culminating with a live performance Thursday night in the Trojan Center Theater.
An outreach of the College of Communication and Fine Arts, the Department of Theatre and Dance’s Summer Spotlight program is designed to both spread arts education and help prepare theater education majors for jobs.
“Summer Spotlight is really an important component for serving the arts, children and youth, the community and our students,” said Adena Moree, Director of Theatre and Dance, which offers a major in P-12 theatre education in concert with the College of Education.
“These children have a wonderful time, and our students really have a chance to hone their instructional delivery to these age groups,” she said.
For 4- and 5-year olds, the Mini-Spotlighters program teaches creative movement, dance, storytelling and arts and crafts.
