    The auditorium of First Presbyterian Church was echoing with strange howls and exclamations last week, as a klatch of “carnival freaks” formed a circle and wailed around two adolescent friends. It was a strange sight to behold.

    On a hot summer day last week, the Antioch Amphitheater was filled with kids singing and dancing in the midday sun. If someone missed their cue, the actors went back to their starting places and began the musical number anew. The temperature was in the upper 80s, and the day’s rehearsal was just getting started.
