Randolph County elementary school students spent the day laughing, singing and dancing with local actors.
Actors from the Old Brick Playhouse in Elkins performed ‘Shrek: The Musical’ for hundreds of students.
Actor Ashley Thompson played Bo Peep during the performance and was happy her brother was able to enjoy the show.
“He was very excited to see me act on stage and he was—I’m sure I’ll hear from his teachers later “that’s my sister on stage.” They did some dance moves with us and it was really nice. I was really happy,” said Thompson.
The Old Brick Playhouse was awarded the Clay Center Impact Grant to make sure students were able to enjoy the show.
