The all-female cast will act in the comedy Camp Confidence by Diana Raffle and a drama Fighting for Myself by Renee J.Clark.

In Camp Confidence, a group of four women with their own idiosyncrasies enroll in a program to build their self-esteem.

Led by character Julia and her uncertain assistant Fiona, the four women learn a great deal about each other, and themselves.

Fighting for Myself is a dramatic portrayal of the pressures that young girls feel from society.

Characters struggle to win back their self-reliance and hold on to their identities in the face of very real stresses.

In a scene from Camp Confidence are Alyssa Mann as “Julia Nelson,” Olivia Mann as “Fiona Saddler,” Amanda Kimball as “Blanche Happ” and Amanda Miano as “Cherry Gordon.”

Though focusing on women’s issues, Fighting for Myself is vital for all, offering a message of hope.

The play features topics that are mature in nature.

Tickets will be sold at the door. A $5 donation is asked.

Donations will help fund the Purple Gallery Club’s trip to SUNY Oswego’s annual drama festival.
