    (Atlantic) The Atlantic Children’s Theatre Group is happy to announce they are partnering with Footliters Traveling Playhouse and the Young Footliters Youth Theatre from Coralville, Iowa to bring a week-long theater experience to kids in Atlantic this June.

    This year’s production will be “The Call of the Matterhorn.” This production is a musical adventure filled with magic, mystery, and true tests of character set in the Swiss Alps. The Call of the Matterhorn is a brand new production with a script by Katie Colletta and original music by Jason Sifford.

    Designed for students at all levels of theatre experience, campers will audition, rehearse, and perform a musical alongside three professional teaching artists…in one week! The traveling group also brings the set, costumes, and props.

    “Thanks to the generosity and support of The Atlantic Rotary Club, The Atlantic Community School Foundation, and numerous individuals in the community, we’re able to cover the $4,500 worth of expenses and offer this opportunity for free,” said Chris Bennett, President of the Atlantic Children’s Theatre Group.

    Held June 24-28 at Atlantic High School, students will begin rehearsals on Monday, practice throughout the week, and put on a public performance of the hour-long show on Friday, June 28th at 7 pm. Children who have completed first grade through 8th grade are invited to participate. No experience is needed. Space is limited; registration will be limited to 60 children due to the script and costume availability.

    Footliters Traveling Playhouse is committed to “engaging and empowering students through an immersive, inclusive theatre experience. We put our students first and collaborate with parents and communities to make our theatre a safe and exciting space for all.”
