SOMERS POINT – Drama Kids International held its second annual spring performances Saturday, May 5 at CharterTechHigh School for the Performing Arts. Students from around the county performed in various plays throughout the day.

Students had the opportunity to act in “The Cleanest Town in Texas,” “The Grasshopper and the Ants” and “Murder at Mornington Manor.”

Drama Kids, under director and owner Sonya De Lucca of Egg Harbor Township, is a developmental program focusing on enriching students through drama literacy.

On Saturday, May 5, 70 children ages 4-13 performed. According to De Lucca there are 400 students enrolled from Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties.

De Lucca participates with local schools, grant programs and community locations to bring Drama Kids to as many children as possible.

"We are making a difference in the lives of all children, those who are naturally dramatic, those who need confidence and self esteem, and some students who are working to enhance their social skills,” she said. “We pride ourselves on teaching our students life-long skills that they can take with them – no other area program does that like Drama Kids.”

She said Drama Kids enhances life-long skills that every child can take with them such as gaining the willingness to take risks. She said that with each risk students take, they feel success, and with success comes confidence.
