It's The Music Machine — Janet Carr-Campbell's summer camp that's a huge hit!
Updated: Jul. 26, 2023 at 5:00 PM AKDT
Janet Carr-Campbell has been teaching the arts to Alaska kids for six weeks a summer for the last 42 years! Her summer camp is called the "Music Machine" and the intense four-day-a-week, six-week camp culminates in a two-hour musical revue at the Discovery Theater. At the Performing Arts Center, 65 kids learn to sing, dance, and take floor direction and perform under the bright lights of the stage. Janet loves what she does, teaching generations of Alaskans how to shine! Janet shows no signs of slowing down! The show must go on!
The show is this weekend: July 27, 28, and 29 (tickets available at centertix.com or call 907-263-ARTS)
