The sound of young, joyful voices could be heard throughout the Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts in Victoria on Sunday.
Members of the Triple Threat Theatre Summer Camp put on their final matinee performance to wrap up the camp.
Teens performed the musical "Hairspray," the story of a boogying teen, Tracy Turnblad, played by Julia Rodriguez, 17, of Edna, who just wants to be on the television show "The Corny Collins Show." The play was filled with songs and dances that take audience members back to the 1960s.
Camp director Michael Teer, of Edna, said there is no better way to close the camp for 4- to 18-year-olds.
"What these kids can do in just two weeks is amazing. They work their hearts out," he said.
The T3 showcase also had student performances of "Dinosaurs Before Dark" and "Disney's The Aristocats," directed by Melissa Jecker, Kathy Montgomery and Teer.
"We can all use a little theater in our life," Teer said to the audience as he introduced the program.
