Youth are the stars of the Show

Starkville’s summer youth theater program, Project Play, gave students ages 5 – 18 the opportunity to express themselves through the world of drama.
The program builds self-confidence and empowers young actors and actresses to aquire skills, explore their creativity and engage in their community.

There were 42 local youth that are the stars of the 2014 show.
This year’s production was, “Gracelyn and the Amazing Flycycle…. Let Your Dreams Fly!”
It relays a positive message to the cast and audience that anyone can achieve great things when they follow their dreams.
This free program is offered throughout the month of June and allows students to help with costumes and props, preparing the set and rehearsing lines to prepare for the show.  Through these “hands-on” learning experiences, each particpant develops their creativity, critical thinking skills and  positive youth development.
The original production presented was written and directed my M.J. Etua of Winston County and was performed for the public at Starkville Community Theater on Main Street, Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28.
