In the news: Kids become Heroes at the Orillia Opera House

Courtesy of the Orillia Packet & Times’s reporter Sara Ross:.

They weren’t dressed in long capes and red tights, but 11 local children turned into comic book heroes and villains at the Orillia Opera House yesterday with the superhuman help of The Director’s Cut, a Newmarket-based business that provides educational workshops.

Sunny Stranks, 11, joined the program because she hopes to become a comic book writer when she is older.

“I like drawing and I started making comic books before this course,” she said. “It’s pretty fun.”

The workshop, called Comic Relief, was taught by two instructors with The Director’s Cut. The workshop was hosted by the City of Orillia’s parks and recreation department. The Director’s Cut travels Canada and the United States using fun activities to teach kids different computer technologies.

“They get to use their imagination and creativity,” said instructor Kristina Cardinale. “They get to learn technology and in the world today everything is technology, so we open their knowledge to different programs they will use in the next coming years.”
