Southern Play Time: Celebrating Haiti
Our second session of Southern Play Time art and drama camp at the Ogden just ended, and it went out with a bang — and a whole lot of confetti! This session, the campers worked with art teacher Gina Phillips and director Mikko to create a play showcasing children’s folk tales from Haiti. There was a magic fish, a competitive cat and dog, a very troublesome tiger and many more creative animal characters. The campers traded bright, beautiful animal costumes for headdresses and drums to round out the play with a Haitian Carnival — and some of the audience members in the front row went home covered in glitter!
