Kids learn valuable lessons, beyond acting, at Camp Creamery
Camp Creamery theatre summer camps have become a tradition for Marsha Fugate Frary's grandchildren. Her granddaughter, Layla Breitbach, participates in several different camps each summer but has chosen Camp Creamery as her favorite. She's returned to the stage four years in a row.
Frary recently wrote a Facebook message to the Old Creamery, in which she states she is most impressed by the staff who teach and mentor the young actors.
"I just wanted to commend the people involved with Camp Creamery for the kiddos," Frary wrote. "I am so very, very impressed with what your group does in 20 short hours. The productions are so much fun, and the young people on stage always do such a fantastic job."
"By you offering this camp, it helps girls and boys build their confidence and self-esteem and is something many of them will carry with them through life."
"I've enjoyed the productions the past 4 years and thought they were all so cute, but I must admit that this year's show was my favorite. You may think it's because Layla was cast as Calamity Jane, but that wasn't entirely why it was my favorite. The story was cute and had such a positive undertone. Each and every kiddo seemed to have such a good time. And the Polecat Posse...the cutest group of critters, for certain!"
"Thank you again for offering this wonderful adventure, and dream come true for so many girls and boys."
"Warmly, Marsha Frary"
