Robson Performing Arts Center’s Youth Theatre to perform Saturday

CLAREMORE — Forty-six young people have been hard at work this month putting together their show, “A Bug’s Tale.”  Part of the Robson PAC’s Imagine Action Youth Theatre, the month of June has not only been lots of work, it’s been fun in the process. 

Acting, singing, and dancing are part of this camp’s day, but also theatre games, meeting new friends, and learning to be creative in many different ways. 

“They can’t wait to perform their show for everyone,” states director, Ruby Quinn.  “They should be very proud of what they’ve created

“The summer program is in its fifth season and it grows each year,” she continued. “Self-esteem and friendship is the name of the game at the workshop.  “You will see an ensemble show where everyone has worked hard and everyone is important —  no divas here.”

A Bug’s Tale will perform this Saturday, June 25 at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $5 adults and $3 students.

“It’s an incredibly positive group of young people, and such a pleasure to see them each day,” said Maigan McPherson, program choreographer.

Elizabeth Keener, music teacher at Claremont Elementary School is the program’s music director.  Pamela Neuok, box office manager at the Robson PAC, is designing sets, lights, and properties.

“Many hands come together to put together this program,”  Quinn said, “and we have tons of fun doing it.”
