Every summer for many years, little dreamers by the dozens have enrolled in the Sebastiani Theatre Performing Arts Camp.
They come because they want to learn how to dance, or do magic, or theater, or how to make movies. They mix with other kids who are like-minded and artsy, and they’re led toward discovery of their particular gifts. The process has been honed and perfected over the years by camp leaders.
Sonoma Valley High School seniors Maritsa Vargas and Genesis Guerrero were once wide-eyed campers themselves. Now on the cusp of what adults call “real life,” they are eager to pay some of that magic forward.
To satisfy the SVHS senior project requirement, the young women have organized a local showcase of talent.
On Saturday, April 22, at 1 p.m., a cadre of young artists will take the stage at Sebastiani Theatre for “Sonoma Kids Got Talent.”
A platoon of little singers, dancers, comedians, and musicians will put on their game faces and battle their nerves. With Vargas and Guerrero in the wings for support, each performer will take a turn in the spotlight. Many are former participants of Performing Arts Camp who are eager to give back to the program that helped shape them.
Proceeds from the showcase will fund future camp scholarships.
Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults, and will be available at the door.
