ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Repertory Theatre is welcoming students who are on spring break this week to its camps.

“Kids are so excited to be here. We’re having classes from first grade through 12th grade right now,” said Jenn Adams-Carrasquillo, senior director of education. “Kids are feeling the same stress everyone is, related to school, related to whatever is going on at home. And being able to come here and step into the shoes of another character and see something from someone else’s point of view, I think, it’s giving them a little bit of a break and much needed jazz-up to the mind and get it going again.”
