Drama Camp does more than teach acting

July 25, 2011

A youth drama camp focused on more than just honing acting talents, as it encouraged more than 30 participants to be the best they could be.
Through exercises in improv, stage movement, character development, diction and projection, the 33 participants, ages 6 through 18, participating in the “To Be or Not To Be Drama Camp,” learned what camp director Cheryl Mulholland described as the most important lesson — “being the best you can be and not judging yourself against others.”
Drama camp attendees also received audition lessons and feedback, something which can be rare in the business.

However, despite all that time, Carter still feels there is a much longer way to go.
“I am still planning on doing it for quite a while yet,” Carter said. “I still think God has a purpose for me yet in the ministry.”
