Gulfport Little Theatre Receives Grant

The Gulfport Little Theatre received a grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission. They were able to use this grant to hold a summer camp for local students.
The three week intensive taught the students all different aspects of the theatre. Not only did they get to work on stage presence, but they also had the opportunity to learn about stage make-up and work the sound board.
The theatre is very thankful to all of the sponsors who helped make this camp a possibility. Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors Carl Walters said, “The grant was received in July and it was for our summer theatre camp. It’s a three week program that we do for kids ages 6-16. It’s really an intensive three weeks that covers all aspects of the theatrical arts.”
The Gulfport Little Theatre is currently rehearsing for its production of Biloxi Blues. You can get more information about the theatre by calling 228-864-7983.
