This week on Artworks, Eric Anderson talks about directing a group of young actors in this summer’s Youth Music Theater Ensemble.  And eighth-grader Amara Crook joins Eric in the WFIU studio to talk about their production of Dreams & Nightmares. For the first time, the YMTE took on the task of creating their summer musical from the ground up.

Also on the program, we’ll sway into the world of belly dancing in Bloomington. Annie Corrigan explores Bloomington’s two troupes and has them explain their differences.
