Students celebrate MLK day at festival
Placeholder Image

Students from Dawson County who took part in the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta over the weekend also visited the “I Have a Dream” booth at the event in remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s contributions to history.


“Dreambooths” were created so that students could record and share their dreams and aspirations with the rest of the festival’s attendees.


Those who attended locally were art groups from the Dawson County Arts Council, as well as students from the Holly Theatre in Lumpkin County.


The Dawson County Arts Council students performed selections from the musical “Guys and Dolls Jr.”


They also performed selections from Disney’s “Winnie the Pooh Kids” for all those in attendance.
