Posted 07/14/2017 02:14PM

If your child is even the slightest bit interested in acting or theater, Summer at Wooster's theater program is where they need to be. Summer at Wooster offers only the best of the best in hopes to give your children fun, meaningful experiences while also excelling in their passions. Summer at Wooster's theater program is run by Wooster School's very own Andy Barrett. Andy has been involved in theater since she was seven years old when she was in her first ever play. Andy attended Sarah Lawrence College for dance and theater and soon after lived in New York City as an aspiring actress. While in New York, Andy was in two broadway shows, went on a national tour, and participated in numerous off-broadway shows gaining experience and doing what she loved. For 15 years after, Andy starred in a one woman show called Books Alive. Andy traveled all over and would memorize books in full and act them out to kids in elementary school. Andy made the show interactive and loved getting the kids involved as well, giving them a little taste of theater at a young age. Andy stopped Books Alive five years ago and has been focusing on her job here at Wooster. Andy now teaches middle school acting classes as well as directing the upper school musical and the middle school annual production. Between Summer at Wooster and Wooster School during the year, Andy has put on upwards of thirty productions and every single one is better than the last.

Last week, the theater program was introduced and a simple acting class was given for interested campers. As this week comes to an end, Andy and the theater group will be performing the Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. The theater group works all day everyday memorizing lines and putting together a show in just five short days. The last two weeks in July the theater group will be working on a musical called Alice in Wonderland Junior so stay tuned for the wonderful performance to come!
