Express yourself was the mantra for participants

Statesboro's budding actors and actresses hit the boards this week as part of the Musical Theater Camp at the Averitt Center for the Arts. 

Campers worked on the kinds of skills and knowledge needed to express and develop their individual talents. Rather than concentrating on a single production, each camper chose and developed a scene or a number he or she can use as an audition piece in the future.

Participants, who ranged in age from 13 to 18, were challenged to use their bodies, voices and minds  to express themselves artistically, both individually and in groups. 

Camp instructors were Ashley Morgan and Robert Cottle.
