Milledgeville ACT director Ruby Werts said, "This is a teaching program focusing on children being comfortable being themselves and acting out other characters. It also teaches them public speaking, memorization skills, and body movements. We teach students things to enable them to be comfortable and confident in front of others."

Werts is a retired elementary school teacher and has been active in local theatre, music and choral groups for many years.  

According to Allied Arts director Randy Cannon, "Ruby has been directing ACT and summer theatre camps for the past twelve years. I have seen her take a student from barely being able to say their name on stage to captivating an audience with their stage presence. Theatre is an amazing vehicle for growth and learning and Ruby knows how to make it fun and enjoyable for everyone."
