Jesse L. Martin Supports “Camp Our Time”

Law & Order star Jesse L. Martin (“Detective Ed Green") made an appearance at Camp Our Time, which is part of the Our Time Theatre Company.

According to the company web site:

Our Time Theatre Company provides an environment of unconditional acceptance where young people who stutter, ages 8-19, discover the joy of creating and performing original theatre and music. Our Time immerses young people who stutter in the arts through six programs: The Teen Play, The Pre-Teen Play, The One-Act Play, The Album Project, Tour, and Camp Our Time (which is available to young people who stutter and their siblings, ages 8-18, from all over the world). Under the guidance of professional theatre artists, the company members write, direct, and perform their own plays and songs, which are performed in Manhattan as well as nationally and internationally. There is no audition for prospective members and no performance experience necessary. Our Time members are chosen based on their openness to learn about theatre and music, their willingness to make a commitment to participate in the company, and their understanding that Our Time is a place of ongoing respect and support. Our Time serves all of its company members free of charge.

A nice picture of Jesse can be found on the Camp Our Time blog page,here. What a nice thing for Jesse to do and what a great cause to support.
