ABINGDON, Va. - Every year during the Virginia Highlands Festival, Barter Theatre invites youth up to 12 years of age to participate in a coloring contest based on one of the Barter Players children's shows.
The Barter Players (Barter Theatre's acting company for young audiences) recently brought three creative children on stage before the last production of James and the Giant Peach. The children were selected as the 2010 winners of the eighth annual Barter Players Summer Coloring Contest.
Winners are John Robert Godfrey, age 4; Ally Yeary, age 6; and Sierra Arnold, age 10. They received special prizes including free tickets to the Saturday production, onstage recognition, and a photo taken with the cast of James and the Giant Peach.
