Martin Sheen to play part in NM drama youth camp
CREATED Jun. 2, 2013
SHIPROCK, N.M. (AP) - Actor Martin Sheen has an upcoming role in New Mexico - that of mentor at a drama camp for American Indian youth.
The Farmington Daily-Times reports the famed star will be in the Navajo Nation community of Shiprock this week, to help out with a local community camp and series of drama workshops. The "Apocalypse Now" and "Wall Street" star will be working with both children and adults.
Plans are for Sheen to work with the camp's drama clinic, which will produce a 45-minute video starring both Sheen and the children.
Every year, the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health puts on a summer camp, Native Vision summer camp, on tribal lands.
This year, the camp will be held at Shiprock High School and the Phil L. Thomas Performing Arts Center in Shiprock.
