--- Issued December 18

Children from the YMCA Art Club at the John E. Horan Garden Apartments found out that practice -- and hard work -- make perfect.
After four months of practice and preparation, thirteen young actors, aged seven to eleven, performed "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" on December 14 at the Roadhouse Theatre. At least 90 parents, families, friends, Authority staff and youth from the YMCA Art Club Club attended the event. The young actors designed and made the majority of their costumes and all of the stage sets. They also made storyboards to help in creating the costumes and the stage. All are students from Edison School. The children are directed by the YMCA Art Club's Angela Howell.

The photos below show some of the actors and John E. Horan, executive director of the Erie Housing Authority.
