Campers to perform "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."
Summer camp isn't just swimming, arts and crafts, camping out and s'mores anymore. For the 15 campers at St. John United Church of Christ, it's all about putting on a show.

St. John United Church of Christ hosts “Art Gives Back,” a concert and silent auction to benefit area residents affected by the tornadoes of 2011.
Sarah Price, director of music and worship arts for St. John United Church of Christ in St. Charles, directed the adult choir on Good Friday with one eye on the music and one eye on the storm outside the stained glass windows in the sanctuary. “We got through the cantata on Good Friday, then moved everybody into the basement," Price said. The Good Friday tornadoes devastated sections of the cities of Bridgeton, St. Ann and Maryland Heights and also damaged areas in New Melle in St. Charles County. On Saturday afternoon, Price, a soprano, and friend Jon Garrett, a tenor, gathered in that same sanctuary to raise money to help those whose homes were damaged in the storm. Price and Garrett collaborated with accompanist Nancy Mayo and artist …
