TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Sara Turner, who is the artistic director of “Great Futures Productions” at the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe, was the featured speaker at the monthly luncheon meeting for Tahoe League for Charity at the Sunnyside Restaurant on Feb. 13.

Once a week, Turner conducts classes with grades K-12 in acting techniques and musical productions. Her theater program, with 140 students a year, originated with a two-week summer camp in 2014 and has evolved into a popular performance troupe that has presented the Tahoe area with eight productions since the program started.

Turner’s acting classes have allowed children to develop skills and techniques for becoming more effective at public speaking, performing and socializing.

As a result, the children have learned to feel more confident and self-assured in any social setting. For additional information on Great Futures Productions and their upcoming events, contact the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe at 530-582-3760.

The Tahoe League for Charity meeting held its March meeting on Monday at Sunnyside Restaurant, with Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Superintendent Rob Leri as the featured speaker.
