It is wonderful that there is a local organization that includes children of all races and religions, fosters their self- confidence in a nurturing environment and even finds ways to involve those young people who may not be interested in appearing on stage, but can fulfill a vital role, and gain much needed self-esteem, by being involved behind the scenes.
