Texas Southern University’s Children’s Theatre Camp ended with a performance of Aesop’s Fables.
The musical started off with a performance of Androcles and the Lion, followed by The Old Woman and the Doctor, and it ended with The Tortoise and the Hare.
Under the guidance of Professor of Theatre Dr. Dianne Jemison-Pollard, the campers learned to sing, act and dance on stage.
Students also learned valuable life lessons while attending the 22nd Children’s Theatre Camp.
“Just keep trying and it will lead to great things in the future,” actress and soloist Alissa Holmes said.
A crowd favorite was the Tortoise from The Tortoise and the Hare.
“I was picked to play the Tortoise because I am a pro at walking slow,” actor Rashaud Williams said.
Due to friendships and bonds being formed during the duration of the three-week camp some campers were not ready to say goodbye to their new friends.
“I will miss you guys,” actress Jay-Lee Hill said. “I hope you have a great life and I enjoyed you all.”
On the other hand, one camper was ready to say goodbye to the other campers.
“Bye,” actor Maddox Fontenot said.
The Children’s Theatre Camp is held annually at Texas Southern University for kids between the ages of 6 to 13.
The cost is $500 per child.
