“All the world’s a stage!”
So says the character Jacques in Shakespeare’s play As You Like It.
With that in mind, if you can’t travel the world, then make the world come to life with theatre!
This summer there are several programs available for your kids to get in the stage spotlight.
Eisenhower High School will host its Eisenhower Summer Drama Camp June 18-22. The camp, which runs from 9 a.m.-noon each day, is intended for kids 6-13.
