I read this in the local newspaper today. Fourth Graders at West Carroll School were asked to pck out a character from the new museum displays in Savanna, Ill. , then study that person and then they will be wearing costumes as the general public tours the museum and asks them questions about the historical character.
The patrons will even have a fake button to push to activate the kid actor!
The $1.00 admission will go to the West Carroll Educational fund.
Costumes, pretending to be someone else, moving, talking, sounds like everything is pretty much covered to get them started as haunt actors to me!
The museum is now home to about 200 manniquins a retired history teacher assembled and dressed depicting Civil War characters. There were alot of different uniforms for that war!
