Family Resource Center’s Arts & Souls After-school Project to showcase ROMP

Over the years, the Family Resource Center (FRC) of Loudon County has conducted drama, dance, and art shows to display knowledge and skills gained during participation in FRC projects. This year’s theme for the Arts & Souls After-school Project is a Broadway style musical performance, entitled ROMP.

The goal for this project was for the children to create their own version of the musical STOMP. All children, ages 5-18, residing in Loudon County were welcomed to participate in this event and no fees were charged for children to participate. Musical experience was not necessary; however regular rehearsal attendance was required.  The children attended practice one day a week for twelve weeks, beginning the first week of February and continuing through April.

This particular project is funded by the 2010 Arts Builds Communities Grant. This grant was made available to the Loudon County FRC by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Tennessee Arts Commission, and the Greater Knoxville Arts & Culture Alliance. The show date for ROMP is scheduled for Saturday, May 8, 2010, at the Lyric Theatre in Loudon.  Admission to this event is free. There will be two performances. The first show will begin at 2:00. Following the performance, there will be a “Meet the Artists Reception” for the community to express their feelings about the project and performance. Another performance will follow the reception and begin at 4:30. For more information about the FRC and for tickets and show times of ROMP, contact Cindy Lawson, Loudon County FRC Director, or Amy Rountree, FRC Assistant Director at (865)458-8502.
