Says Ryan: "John and I started Young Actors' Theatre Camp 11 years ago as a way to give back to the community and teach students how to pursue a life in the performing arts. The camp is about expressing individuality both on stage and off, without judgment. This is what gives these children and young adults the confidence they need to be true to themselves and, in the end, what will make them great actors!"
