Actors from CLIMB Theatre performed a show at Frank White Education Center Tuesday afternoon for early childhood students.

Victor Albaum and Amanda Pintore performed "The Elves and the Shoemaker." It is a 30-minute script for pre-kindergarten students. The skit teaches students the importance of not boasting and bragging and how to afraid to ask someone for help if they need it.
