Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal

Students from the Summer Professional Theatre Training Program for Young Actors at The Public Theatre in Lewiston present a satirical twist on the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, one of several fairy tales called Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl that they performed on Friday night. The Public Theatre's intensive summer program is taught by theater professionals. The students have been working for the past three weeks taking daily classes in stage combat, voice and speech, singing and the fundamentals of acting.
