“An actor’s day in Hollywood starts just like yours: We get a sheet of paper with new words to learn! But often, we don’t understand what those words mean… so we have a coach to help us. –Will you be my Hollywood coach today?”
So begins a fun adventure for kids into the best script of all: Scripture!
