CLIMB Theatre, a regional youth education organization, visited Eagle View Elementary School on Friday afternoon, March 29, to teach students about self control.

Nicole Tuttle, Alex Johnson and Danielle Formanek presented a skit about superheroes and invited students to help them save the world.

Formanek played "Volcano," a superhero with a short fuse that could easily blow her top when she got frustrated. Johnson played "Kronos," the time sheriff who used his powers (and the kids' help) to go back in time and teach Volcano how to control her emotions in a responsible and positive way.

"We use theater as a teaching tool to teach important social skills," Tuttle said about her job with CLIMB. "And fun costumes are always a plus."
