Backstage at Summerland Elementary School’s opening night performance of “The Lion King” on June 7, young players buzzed behind the Carpinteria Children’s Project’s main stage, warming their voices and practicing their steps. The energy was high as performers got into costume and makeup and hummed their last vocal drill with drama teacher Laezer Schlomkowitz just moments before the curtains opened. Throughout the musical, audience memberserupted in applause and laughter as performers led them on the familiar story of “The Lion King” with a delightful and surprising amount of talent.
