−Community Cinema: MEDORA a film by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Medora, follows the down-but-not-out Medora (Indiana) Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of a season, capturing their stories both on and off the court. Riding a brutal losing streak when the film begins, the team’s struggle to compete bears eerie resemblance to the town’s fight for survival. An in-depth, deeply personal look at small town life, Medora is also a thrilling, underdog basketball story and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. While the film follows this particular team in this particular place, ultimately Medora is a film about America, and the thousands of small towns across the country facing the same fight. As one resident observes, “Once we lose these small towns, we can’t get them back.” Directed by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart,Medora premieres on Independent Lens on Monday, March 31, 2014, 10:00-11:30 PM ET on PBS (check local listings).

−MVCCT Summer Camp: Keep Youth Moving, Learning and Exploring this Summer9:30 am – 5:00 pm
[Alexandria, VA ] –Mount Vernon Community Children’s Theatre (MVCCT) is offering camp programs to give kids an adventurous, active and healthy summer.
MVCCT camp programs offer youth fun and unique experiences with an opportunity to explore creativity, meet new friends, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime.
Nearly 50 percent of U.S. parents say technological distractions, such as television, cell phones or video games make it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle for their children, according to the latest findings of the YMCA’s Family Health Snapshot, a survey that gauges children’s activity levels during the school year. With more free time in summer, ensuring that kids practice healthy habits could be a greater challenge. MVCCT encourages parents to help their kids unplug from technology and explore all MVCCT camp has to offer.
Attending MVCCT Theatre summer camp is a wonderful opportunity for kids to keep their minds and bodies active. Kids get to learn about acting, take on new responsibilities, gain independence, and develop essential social skills and new relationships. MVCCT encourages parents to give their kids the gift of camp so that every child can benefit from the experience.
There are five reasons why children should attend summer camp:
1. ADVENTURE: Summer camp is all about a wide variety of fun adventures and new experiences, and especially exploring new horizons
2. HEALTHY FUN: Camps offer fun, stimulating activities that engage the body and mind.
- Teaches self-discipline and team work
- Is an important means of stimulating creativity in problem solving.
- Challenges students’ perceptions about their world and about themselves.
- Provides students with an outlet for emotions, thoughts, and dreams.
- PERSONAL GROWTH: While being away from the routine back home, youth have a chance to learn new skills, and develop confidence and independence by taking on new responsibilities and challenges.
- NEW FRIENDSHIPS: Amidst the fun of camp games, songs, acting classes and final performance showcase, campers meet new friends and strengthen existing friendships.
- MEMORIES: Summer camp is an unforgettable experience that will give each camper memories that will last a lifetime.
MVCCT’s theatre camp offers a structured yet creative outlet that encourages children to flourish. Whether or not campers know it, they are learning each day. Theatre camp sneaks in lots of traditional aspects of education, in addition to theatrical education.
MVCCT’s Camp is designed to be process oriented; the purpose is to expose the children to various aspects of theater and corresponding elements. All camps balance process and learning focus with production and performance. Basic theatre games and exercises are designed to work on specific acting craft areas, such as believability, sensory memory, and communication. Rehearsals teach performance skills, learning to follow directions and team building. There is a final showcase performed on last day of camp.
