"The Little Pioneer Soccer Clinic is fun for kids and lets our players connect with younger kids as mentors," said Coach Ken Lott. "It's great to get the younger players out on the high school field and let them see what they can work toward, hopefully playing for the Pioneers one day. We just want to support younger players, help them learn some specific soccer skills, and feel good about this game."

"It allows you to have fun, be crazy, and to express yourself without being judged. It is a safe place to be yourself or anything you want to be – the theatre is amazingly free.

"We will feature other parts of theatre as well, because not everyone wants to be on stage. We will show the kids the light/sound booth, backstage, how to do make-up, and a bit about vocals. The actual workshops will be run by STELLA offices. We are really excited to show young kids something they can be involved with when they get in high school.

"At the end of the workshop, they will perform on stage so their families can see them and support them in something they hopefully do in their future."
In addition to the Children's Theatre Workshop, STELLA will present The Everyday Adventures of Harriet Handelman on Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20, both at 7 p.m. in the LHS Auditorium. Tickets are $3 at the door.
Don't miss these great events sponsored by the Leavenworth High School Pioneers.
