TheatreFest!, the summer theatre at Lindsey Wilson College, has decided to continue their third annual day camp, IMAGINE! Youth Theatre, online! The camp will begin June 15, 2020, and consist of weekly lessons delivered through video format to students free of charge.

"We have been hard at work figuring out how we may be able to continue to serve the youth of the community while also keeping their health and safety at the forefront of our decisions," says Associate Artistic Director Jeremy Cloyd. "IMAGINE! is important to, not only me, but to so many kids throughout our community and I couldn't live with the idea of not allowing those kids the opportunity to express themselves this summer."

Beginning June 15, the camp will consist, each week, of videos and activities for your students with both video and written assignments to submit to our team of Education Artists who will provide feedback and encouragement on each activity. The 4 weeks will focus on Acting, Playwriting, Elements of Theatre, and Shakespeare!

Laura Woodrum, Director of Nursing response presented by Shawn Crabtree

Q: Are we ever going to see county-by-county breakdowns on number of tests administered? Tennessee has been providing that information for weeks.
A: Numerous providers are using various labs to do testing. There isn't a universal way to report when testing is being done. The governor's office is asking providers give them the number of tests being done. We don't have that breakdown by county.

Governor offers guidance for a safe Memorial Day weekend

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear on Tuesday set out state guidelines for having a safe Memorial Day weekend while continuing to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

"Just because we are healthy at home and healthy at work doesn't mean we can't be out there to be healthy physically," the Governor said. "The healthier we get, the more resilient we will be if we ever see anything else like this in our lifetime."

Keeping safe while celebrating together is crucial as we enter the traditional start of the summer season. Gov. Beshear and state health officials are asking all Kentuckians to keep gatherings to 10 or fewer people.
