Think about all the routine things you do every day. Brush your teeth, make a sandwich and pour yourself a glass of water. Now imagine doing it blind. Participants in the 15th annual “Come Walk in My Shoes” event didn’t have to imagine, they got to try it for themselves.
Cassidy Rendon, a student at Belton Middle School, attempts to make a sandwich while blindfolded.

Young actors bustled in and out of the dressing room at the Temple Civic Theatre Monday as Betsi Chamlee put the finishing touches on the children's stage makeup. "I call it the lipstick trick," she said, dotting some pink around the eyes to brighten up the face. "I use this every time I perform." Ms. Chamlee directs the season's first youth play, "The Arkansaw Bear," at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The story follows a young girl, Tish, as she deals with her grandfather's eminent death. Circus characters like a dancing bear, a ringmaster and three mimes help her along the way. But a lot has to happen before the children step on stage. The cast had only four and a half weeks to prepare for the performance. Rehearsals begin with warm-ups typically done in professional theater where actors recite alliteration with different emotions like anger, irritation or relief. "It's to get rid of the day and the regular life and focus on the story you're going to tell," Ms. Chamlee said. That story, written by Aurand Harris, had been on the books for a few years, but Ms. Chamlee hesitated since it deals with the heavy subject of death. "This year just seemed like a time when I could embrace it," she said. Kristin Glorioso, 13, plays one of the mimes. Although she has no speaking parts, she's in almost every scene, gesturing all of her lines without making a peep. To prepare for the role, she spends a lot of time not talking. "It's a lot harder than it looks," said Miss Glorioso, who is naturally talkative. Ms Chamlee said theater educates students about things they don't learn in the classroom like cooperation and posture. It comes easy for most of the young actors. "We, by nature, are storytellers," she said. "The first thing we do with our children is read them a story." Eight-year-old Cassidy Rendon as Tish sets the play's plot, desperately wondering why her grandpa must die. She wishes upon Star Bright, played by Jackie Lock, 13, who wears a bright, glittery gold dress. "I like to dress up and be somebody else," Miss Lock said. "I can be very serious at times, or I can be as bubbly and carefree as a butterfly." IF YOU GO WHAT: "The Arkansaw Bear" WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday WHERE: Temple Civic Theatre, 2413 S. 13th St. admission: $5 children 12 and under, $8 adults
The Temple Civic Theatre opens its 2009-10 youth season with "The Arkansaw Bear" at 8 p.m. Sept. 25 and 26 and 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sept. 27 at the theater. Written by Aurand Harris, the story follows a little girl named Tish dealing with her grandfather's eminent death with help from a dancing bear and other whimsical circus characters, including a ringmaster and mimes. The cast includes Cassidy Rendon as Tish, Jackie Lock as Star Bright, Kristin Glorioso, J.R. Winsor and Hannah Odell as the mimes, J.C.
