PERFORMANCE at CEPA
How to Eat Like a Child – And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up
2016 CEPA Sumer Drama Camp Finale
Friday, June 24 • 6 p.m.
Doors at 5:30 p.m. • Entry $5
Coming this Friday to the Pell City Center for Education and the Performing Arts (CEPA) stage is a play featuring some of the county’s finest kid actors doing what they do best – acting like kids.
“How to Eat Like a Child – And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up” is a play that will see the members of this year’s CEPA Summer Drama Camp teaching lessons to each other – and the audience – about understanding the nuances of kid behavior.
So, for example if you ever wondered what it’s like to be a kid at bedtime (“I hate going to bed,” they say) or what kids do at school all day (“I put my head down and take a nap,” they add), these actors are ready to show you.
“It’s lessons like “How to Ride in a Car” that really crack us up,” said Ginger McCurry, Pell City High School’s drama teacher and instructor for CEPA’s Summer Camp. “When one child, pretending to be a parent, tells another to ‘draw an imaginary line’ and don’t cross it, adults get to see what they look like from their kids’ perspectives.”
The full-length musical comedy is abased on a book written by Delia Ephron, and in the the 1980s it was adapted into a TV movie starring Dick Van Dyke.
“How to Eat like a Child” will feature 18 local actors performing on the CEPA stage on Friday, June 24 at 6 p.m. The theater opens at 5:30 p.m., and the cost is $5 at the door.
