Class: Muckrakers- Introduction to Journalism- *Sold out*
Dates: June 29-July 3
Description: We will look at the history of journalism, examining its purpose and evolution over time. We will study famous muckrakers who exposed corruption via their in-depth, and sometimes undercover reporting. We will read and analyze credible sources, discuss the qualities and elements of a news story, and write informational articles using different writing techniques. Students will implement the five W’s through research and conduct their own interview. They will endeavor to write a lead and quotes as part of their news story structure.
Join us June 20th for the Virtual Premiere of Kid Frankenstein, directed by Marcie for Beyond The 4th Wall Expression Theatre.

“Fun 2B4 by Marcie & Merlin “Today is Quinn and Amelia’s birthday and Fun 2B4 is a hit! We’re sad we can’t be in Indiana to dance with them but Facetime allowed us to see how much they like the song. Wooh yeah! We appreciate your good work.”
Kids Music by Marcie is going global!!!! I’ve transitioned my live performance into an awesome virtual experience that keeps kids engaged with each other, and not just with a screen.
What: 12 half hour sessions that happen on the half hour. Just sign in once and teachers will continuously come into the Zoom space, so no need to re-sign in. Sessions will be a variety of acting, singing, dancing, skit creation and art in true BT4W style.
Why: We want to continue to connect to our students and offer quality programming. It’s important to us that we not let the current situation prevent students from accessing theatrical opportunities! We are more dedicated than ever to reaching out to our youth to provide them a space to express their creative voice! This camp also serves as an important employment opportunity for our talented staff during this unprecedented time.
