Nervous giggles, excited whispering, and a confidence-boosting pep talk — this was the scene just minutes before the WorkWell Theater Team put on the show they had been working towards for weeks. Through Mayor Megan Barry's program, Opportunity Now, twenty-four 14 and15-year-olds were hired to have their first job experience this summer, with us! In the Theater Team, five of them, the self-named "The Ginger Ales," worked together to write a skit, choreograph a dance, learn a song, and perform it all in a variety show for elderly residents at a nearby retirement home.
We're so thankful for the development that took place in these girls during their first job experience - in both skills and character. Catch their review video below!
