- Behind The Scenes
STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) -- Students in grades seven through 12 are once again learning to sing, dance, and act on stage thanks to an annual three-week summer program at Mississippi State University.
"We get cast in our roles and so we put the show together in the last two weeks of camp. It's a lot of work, but it's really fun and it's really rewarding," said Rachel Demms, an actress in the Young Summer Theater camp.
"Learn how to dance and sing is really going to improve my skills as an actor," added Louis Codling, another camper.
"Friends, you get to write and act while having fun," echoed Wrishi Bundyopadhyay.
The students spend the first week of camp writing a script. During the second week, the actors and a production crew begin bringing together their roles and the set. The third week, the campers fine tune their production and present it to the public.
This year's presentation has an apocalyptic theme and will be held at McComas Hall July 20-21; admission is free.
