THEY SAY THE BEST WAY TO ENSURE SUPPORT FOR THE ARTS IS TO RAISE CHILDREN WITH ART. Better yet, let children make art and it will be sustained forever. The children of Houston are lucky indeed because each summer they get to hang out with the staff of professional arts organizations like the A.D. Players (www.ADPlayers. org); Alley Theatre (www.AlleyTheatre.org); the Houston Grand Opera/HGO (www.HoustonGrandOpera.org); and Main Street Theater (www.MainStreetTheater.com). In the A.D.

In the Alley Theater camps, kids work with pros learning acting/improv, playmaking and movement/dance. Main Street Theater offers a variety of camps for kids ages 4–18, includ- ing one of my faves, a Shakespeare camp for older teens. This year they are presenting Cymbeline: The Live Anime smashing together the tale of the King of England with Japanimation. And in the HGO camps, kids get to explore opera from all angles – their “Create an Opera” camp for third through sixth graders lets kids be the authors/ directors/singers and ends with their own production onstage.
