The Play's the Thing!

Did you know that there's a new kids theatre in Kitchissippi?  It's the "New Star Childrens Theatre" operating out of the Westboro United Church at 450 Churchill Avenue (at Ravenhill right across from Churchill Alternative School).  The musical theatre programs are for children aged 7 to 16.  It is an inclusive program - all children are given parts in the production they work on.  Students are taught through rehearsals (6-8 hours per week) over the course of a 6 months session.  Melanie Walker, is the director of the Ottawa Theatre and Carole-Ann Walker is the theatre's producer.  For more detail, and some pictures, check out their website or call them at (613) 523-3264. 
If you try it out, let me know what you think!
