LEWISTON -- The Public Theatre's professional theatre training program will perform "How to Act Like a Child" Lessons in (NOT) Being a Grown-Up" based on the novel "How to Eat Like a Child" by Delia Efron, at 6 p.m., Friday, July 26, at The Public Theatre, 31 Maple St. The performance is free and open to the public.

Featuring a hand-picked group of 16 students ranging in ages from 10 to 16, these young thespians have been hard at work for the past three weeks taking daily classes in stage combat, voice and speech, singing and the fundamentals of acting. The Public Theatre's summer intensive program is a unique alternative to other "drama camps," as it is taught exclusively by theatre professionals, offering professional insights and standards.

The production is directed by Public Theatre Co-Artistic Director Janet Mitchko, and faculty members Barbara Helen Baker and Katy Ameglio. The short production features hilarious lessons including "How to torture your sister," "How to get your parents to buy you a dog," and "How to act after being sent to your room," among others, as well as several musical numbers.
