Horizon Youth Theatre offers two
theater experiences this summer
Horizon Youth Theatre is offering two summer sessions for young artists, July 7 to 31, Monday through
Session one is for ages 5 to 9 and is "Roadrunners Dance," adapted by Paul Wesley Alday. It
will be held from 10 to 11:15 a.m.
This is a traditional western folk tale explaining a fictional account of how something came to be.
Though the events in the story are fabricated, the lessons are not. This story uses animals to explain
how each member of a community can contribute to solve a problem, with a little magic.
Participants will develop the play through creative movement and performance. They will learn through
developing scenery, costuming, performance and puppetry under the guidance of trained theater staff.
Session two is "Moby Dick," also adapted by Alday. It will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1:05 p.m.

This is Herman Melville’s classic mariner’s tale of Captain Ahab and the crew of the whaling ship, the
Pequod, in search of the great white whale.
Participants will develop a performance, bringing Melville’s characters and story to life through
storytelling, action and shadowplay.
The cost for each session is $75.

Area residents interested in transforming their dirty vehicles into spotless masterpieces are encouraged
to visit the Owens Community College Toledo-area campus as 34 children from the Child Care Center, armed
with buckets of suds, will host a Summer Car Wash Donation Drive, today and Wednesday. Proceeds raised
from the car wash will benefit the center’s Summer School Age Program and its annual "mystery"
The car wash will be held in the north corner of the College Hall parking lot (Lot A) from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. Donations will be accepted for each car wash. Additionally, children will be selling homemade
cookies and lemonade. Owens is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.
The Summer School Age Program is focused on providing quality and affordable child care for the children
of faculty, staff, students and the community. Youth enrolled in the program spend their summer
participating in an array of educational activities designed to expose children to Northwest Ohio’s
culture. The lessons are guided by the children themselves and include field trips such as putt-putt,
bowling, ice skating, roller skating and swimming, as well as visits to the Toledo-Lucas County Public
Library, the Toledo Museum of Art’s Glass Pavilion and a Toledo Mud Hens game.
