The teenagers enrolled in the after school program performed a play dealing with famous characters from music and the arts.  They did much of the research and put in a great deal of practice and hard work preparing for this day.

The young men portrayed Robert Nighthawk, Frank Frost, and Sam Carr.  They finished the skit with  a lip sink rendition of Big Boss Man!!!!

This was the second part of an after school program that the Delta Cultural Center has started to get the young people of Phillips County involved with acting and history.  It also develops leadership and creativity as they prepare and perform their acts.  The school program will continue after Christmas and the DCC will be looking for even more young people to get involved.  DCC Director Kyle Miller along with the entire staff are expanding the reach of this amazing agency more everyday.  Great things for the Helena area are always happening. Everyone is welcome.   I am so proud of these young men and women.  They did an outstanding job!!
