Dozens participate in Smoot Theatre's Camp Vaudeville

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Dozens of kids interested in the arts are getting a treat thanks to the Smoot Theatre in Parkersburg.

40 children are participating in Camp Vaudeville, a 7-day camp that provides them with a glimpse into the arts during the Vaudeville era.

Activities include acting, art, dancing, learning about history, music, and technical theatre.

"I'm in it because when I grow up I want to be a singer and this has a lot of singing and acting," said Lyla Davis, a camp participant.

""It's really fun I love this camp because I love acting and singing and dancing," said Kalianna Washington, a camp participant.

This year's camp theme is immigration. Each day during the camp, immigrants speak to the children about their stories.

The camp culminates with a final performance on Tuesday, July 17th at 7 p.m. at the theatre.
