Children's play gives life lesson

April 21, 2006

Albany -- A group of young thespians got in costume Friday night for Albany Junior Theater's production "Dear Edwina".

It's a story about a girl who sings advice to other children who write her letters.

The 45 performers practiced five times a week since late March. The cast is made up of kindergarteners to ninth graders.

"It really helps them with their confidence, public speaking. They seem to excel in leadership. They have no qualms about standing and talking in front of a large crowd and things of that nature, and really it's about having fun," said Alicia Croxton.

The songs have themes such as having good manners and the importance of helping others.

If you missed Friday night's show the budding performers will take the stage again Saturday night at 7 pm at Darton College's theater.
