The first week of The Walpole Players 5th Annual Summer Theater Camp, under the astute leadership of Jim Skofield and Carolyn Norback, concluded July 11th with the “junior students” (entering second through fourth grades) presenting RUMPELSTILTSKIN to an audience of proud parents, siblings, grandparents and friends. The performance was narrated by two assistant counselors who, having completed years of theater camp, have entered high school and are no longer eligible to be a camper, but using their learned skills have moved on to assist Jim and Carolyn in conducting the camp.
Eighty percent of this group had never ever before performed on stage, but that was in no way obvious with the skill in which they performed and projected their stage presence. The “senior group” (students entering fifth through eighth grades) have two weeks of camp, and will be presenting their performance at the end of camp on July 18th.
