Students from the Department of Theater and Dance shared their “gifted” talents as a service outreach to gifted children who just might catch a creative spark. Deborah Sorce of the Indiana Area School District chose the Department of Theater and Dance for an enrichment field trip on October 1, 2010.
Sorce and twenty-two elementary-aged students visited the Performing Arts Center for a day of activities and demonstrations. IUP Theater and Musical Theater majors gave workshops and tours, then performed a scene from the upcoming play Crimes of the Heart. Actors and the technical crew from the production shared how they use their gifts to create theater.
Seniors Geoff Maus and Hank Fodor concluded the day with a stage combat demonstration enjoyed by all.
