The Public Theatre’s professional theatre training program for teens will perform Twisted Tales, an assortment of traditional children’s stories with added songs on Friday, July 25th at 6pm.  Featuring an auditioned and hand-picked group of twelve students ranging from ages 10 to 15, 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 student’s final performance is inspired by Revolting Rhymes, a hip and entertaining twist on some well know fairytales written by Roald Dahl as well as a fun version of The Three Little Pigs created by the student’s master acting teacher, Barbara Helen Baker.   Also included will be several songs to show off the vocal skills they are learning as well as some fun stage combat moves. The presentation, which is free of charge and open to the public, will take place on Friday July 25th, at 6pm at The Public Theatre.
