Youths learn at annual drama camp

Puppetry was the form of art being taught Thursday afternoon at the week-long 24th annual Kids & Company Drama Camp held at the Boyd Cultural Arts Center at Wilmington College. This camp, for ages 11-17, is led by Lois Hock, Professor of Theatre at Wilmington College. Camp sessions are also taught by Ken and Tara Lydy, Timothy Larrick and Cole Hough as well as others. A camp for younger kids was held earlier in July. For more photos from the Thursday afternoon class, visit wnewsj.com.

This puppet has something to say — and judging from the reactions of drama camp participants, it was amusing. Bringing the hand puppet to life is Karie Gipson, right foreground.
