TRURO - While many people might get excited about the musical performers coming to the Marigold Cultural Centre this summer, its fundraising co-ordinator can't wait for the happenings on a daily basis.
"I'm stoked about our camps," said Melanie Grant, referencing the art, musical theatre and drama camps happening.
"We have camps every week for the summer."
While some of the camps are full already, some have spaces available for those children interested in participating.
"I can't wait to see the kids coming in and out of the Marigold theatre, making art, experiencing art and creating art. It's going to be such a hive of activity and I really can't wait to feel the energy of those kids working on art."
Camps at the Marigold start next week with Leslie Lake Searle leading a three-day musical theatre camp for singers, actors and dancers.
For two weeks in both July and August, Jillian Ritchie will lead art classes, complete with painting, sculpting and drawing, among others.
Wayne Burns will lead a drama camp for three different age groups during the month of August.
"I love how the Marigold centre is just becoming a central place for an art experience in our town," said Grant.
Along with the camps for children, there are a number of musical performances scheduled for both July and August.
Irish lovers will get their fill on July 12 with Irish Mythen and Shannon Quinn taking the stage.
The Russell deCarle Trio is booked for July 19, featuring performances by Steve Briggs, Denis Keldie and special guest Linda Brooks.
For the weekend of July 20 and 21, Spotlight Musical Theatre is presenting a production of The Wiz for two evening shows and a Saturday matinee.
The final performance scheduled so far for the summer is Steve Poltz on Aug. 16.
