A few of us were comparing notes about some of the great kids activities, classes, etc. available around Carlsbad and Encinitas, and the subject of acting came up.
Our older daughter Brenna has been involved with Prodigy Players, a local kids’ theatre troupe, for the past 2+ years...

I wanted to tell u how much fun Avery had at Camp! Literally I think it was the most she has ever enjoyed any camp! She sang and danced and performed Fame every night for us, and one night for company! :-)
Anyway we were pretty impressed with how great it was and wanted to let you know. Wish she could do another week!!

Peter passed out

The kids had a fantastic time (so did we!). And the picture is a living proof! Peter passed out in the car (3 hour nap!!!!- he doesn't nap these days) 5 minutes after we left the studio.
We'll see you next year!

What a nice opportunity for kids to “act” out! Caryn has the magic touch when it comes to getting my daughter to sing, dance, and act! For days after having a class there, my daughter is singing the songs! It is so wonderful to see a structured arts class that embraces my child’s imagination and talents! We will go to a week-long summer camp and have our kid’s birthday party there! We love it!
