Our Creative Expressions Players held 2 performances of “Entertainment through the Years” on May 6 and 13 at the Abundant Life Church in Ballston Spa. 29 actors involved in this year’s production were from many programs. They perfected their costumes, props, music, singing and dance moves individually or in groups, but their enthusiasm, joy and smiles stole the show for the rousing audience of 100 people.
The mission of the Creative Expressions Players is to expand the participants’ knowledge of the arts and to create opportunities for them to gain confidence to perform on a stage. The goal is encourage skill development such as listening, following directions, projecting their voice and learning songs and choreography. The actor’s self-esteem grows with each rehearsal as many were originally intimidated and uncomfortable to even speak in front of their peers. As a result, the group is enjoying the theatrical process and delights in the applause they receive!
