Jordan Van Dyke of Niceville, Belle, and Daniel Thornton of Baker, Prince/Beast, rehearse in the Sprint Theater at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center

The Camp Glee creative dramatics program at Northwest Florida State College will present two free performances of “Beauty & the Beast, Jr.” at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. July 3 in the Sprint Theater of the Mattie Kelly Fine & Performing Arts Center on the Niceville campus. The performance is open to the public and free of charge. Open seating is on a first come basis.

The mini summer musical is the culmination of a summer intensive workshop for students in eighth grade through college that provides training by college faculty in acting, voice, makeup, dance and staging. Now in its 17th year, the program allows youth the opportunity to train and perform at the state-of-the-art facilities of the college’s fine & performing arts complex.

Adia Langley of Destin has a part as one of the villagers.

Camp Glee is taught by Allison Everitt, NWFSC voice professor; Uli Dunbar, NWFSC dance professor; and Christa Whittaker, drama instructor at Fort Walton Beach High School and adjunct NWFSC professor.
