Raise the curtain and cue the kids. Beckley Children Theatre presents "The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe" with opening act of "A Crazy Story."
Final preparations were underway today with costumes and last minute rehearsals. Kids from ages 5 to 15 are putting on the production. BCT Manager Gayle Oaks says no kid was turned away and she has seen them come out of the shells and build confidence along the way. BCT's premiere performed and operated by children is ready to showcase its talents.
"We're not professionals, we are kids putting on a show and it's just for the community to get the children exposed to the theatre and exposed to the arts and being comfortable in front of people and being comfortable in themselves."
Opening act is this Thursday and Friday, April 11th and 12th at 7 PM at the Family Life Center on Johnstown Road, Beckley. A $5 admission fee or donation of any amount is welcomed to help fund future productions in the fall.
