The Westside Academy of Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) hosted “Summer Showtunes” Saturday afternoon following a two-week drama camp held at the church this summer.
Campers performed musical numbers from “Hairspray,” “Hamilton,” “The Sound of Music” and more.
This year marked the third summer that Central has provided a kid’s camp promoting fun while learning theatrical skills, but it was the first year under the direction of Lois Leftwich and choreographer, Michael D’Andre Childs.
Leftwich has taught for The Junior Players, Dallas Children's Theatre and Park Cities Dance. Childs made his Dallas debut in 2015 and has excelled displaying his talents in the Dallas Arts industry.
Parents, family friends and Central members gathered in Fellowship Hall Saturday afternoon to watch the performance and cheer on these talented kids.
Performing were Payton Archer, Carissa Burns, McNaron Gray, Thomas Jordan, Elise Laharia, and Tinashe McGowan.
Remember the Westside Academy when planning next year's summer camps for your kids.
