More than 50 youths taking part in New Horizon Theater Performing Arts camp this week will put on a showcase performance for the public Friday.
The show is at 6:30 p.m. at the theater downtown in West Point, 411 W. 8th St.
For the third year in a row, Julia Langley is directing the camp.
“Her partnership with our theater has been fantastic and our camper numbers have grown every year,” said Holly Wheeler, spokeswoman for the theater.
Langley, who is originally from Roanoke, Ala., has just returned from a worldwide tour with Cirque Dreams and Armed Forces Entertainment, entertaining troops in 10 countries. She also has performed on Broadway.
“Performing arts is a universal ground for people everywhere,” Langley said. “No matter where you live or what language you speak, music and the arts brings people together. I’m so happy that West Point, Georgia, and the surrounding area can benefit from a gem such as New Horizon Community Theater. And even more than that, I am so proud to work with the theater and such a great group of people that have shaped so many lives through performing arts.”
