Kids love percussion and what kids love was demonstrated at a recent Optimist Club meeting by members of the Lambs Players’ Youth Education Project cast. It is amazing what talented performers can do with common plastic buckets used as drums. The cast visits schools in the area, presenting important messages through drama and music. Most important, the kids love it.
Character development is the goal of the performances. Making literature fun, encouraging physical education, respecting others and conflict resolution are but a few examples of what the performances highlight. Letters of thanks from kids, from teachers and from parents were passionate with praise. One youngster wrote to say, “I had lost my imagination, but you brought it back.”
We are fortunate to have a local theater company with such a positive outreach and remarkable talent. The Optimist Club is proud to support their efforts.
