Celebrating its fifth anniversary this summer, Get2Act will also present a full-length production of Godspell August 8-9 at Trinity Church in Joppa, Md.

 

(Fallston, Md.) July 24, 2014 – Twenty-one local student actors performed last weekend in Fame, Jr., held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Joppa, Md. The production was part of a summer camp program offered by Get2Act, a local theater company that also provides acting classes and workshops to elementary through high school-aged students.

 

To prepare for the show, the young actors attended a two-week camp which ran Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. In that short time frame, the students auditioned, were cast in their roles and learned lines, songs and choreography to deliver a complete theatrical production.

Get2Act Founder and Managing Director Tim Baldwin comments, “It’s inspirational to see our students gain confidence both on and off stage. Their talent and commitment to create this energetic theatrical production is exciting and contagious. I am very proud of our actors’ accomplishments and of how their performance brought generations of families to the audience, creating lifetime memories.  I am excited to lead 29 actors in our next project: Godspell!”
