So began an evening of music, dance and smiles as members of Campus Club performed for enthusiastic parents and friends, fulfilling in some way, a dream.
Campus Club gives a group of intellectually challenged adults between 18 and 22 a chance to meet together to complete crafts and learn new skills. This annual performance is a highlight, which they “absolutely love doing,” according to Deborah Bowman, who emceed the program.
As each of the club members talked of a dream – to go to New York City and perform on Broadway, to be a basketball player, to be on American Idol or to be a stand-up comedian, they performed songs or basketball routines they had selected.
Students from Woods Cross High performed with the young adults, prompting and supporting in duets and in dances.
Sharene Lloyd, who wrote and directed the production, said the high school students loved the chance to be a part of the program. “When I’d thank them, they all said, no – thank you for letting us help.”
