Putting kids onstage

Campers learn to love the spotlight - in the theater or in real life

by Meghan Neal

At Danville's KAOS camp, which stands for Kids Acting on Stage, campers learn all the nuts and bolts of putting on a play. But they also learn confidence, social skills and self awareness. These talents go beyond drama, says camp director Jeff Seaberg.

Hi, I am the girl from the front of July 18th's newspaper! (I am the small one) Thank you for putting my favorite camp online and in the newspaper! It was the best article in the Danville Weekly I've ever read!

Hi, I am Sofie. Jeff's plays have given me the confidence to do other things. For instance, I am moving this summer. And without him, I would probably be the shyest girl in my new school! But he showed me that I can do it. Anything is possible. Dream big! He makes you forget there is an audience there, like your rehersing your lines in the mirror. Him and his partener, steff, have put on grueling all- nighters and three- degree burns just to give us the perfect show. They will always be as fun and energetic as they started out!
