A musical theater day camp experience at Prescott Park Arts Festival in downtown Portsmouth

"My eight-year-old daughter performed in last year’s (2014) production of Godspell. The skills she learned during the camp, and the confidence she gained by giving a performance, which included a small solo part have shaped her into the leader she is now."
