STANDISH — “It’s My Line Anyway!” an evening of improv theater will be presented at 6 p.m., Saturday, May 22, by the Schoolhouse Youth Theater Ensemble at the Schoolhouse Arts Center at Sebago Lake. The performance is a benefit event to support the Schoolhouse education program.

Tickets are $15.

Schoolhouse’s energetic group of young performers has been hard at work over the past few months creating an evening of live theater the Lake’s Region will not soon forget. “It’s My Line Anyway!” is fast-paced theater appropriate for all ages.

The evening will commence with hor d’oeuvres, desserts, silent auction, games and light entertainment — then on with the show, Youth Theater style.

The Youth Theater Ensemble is comprised of 18 creative young people from around the Lakes Region area, including Hollis, Gray, Sebago, Standish, Limington, Cornish, Gorham, Bridgton and even as far away as North Conway, N.H.

This year was the pilot year for the youth theater program. The group has performed “Night of January 16” a courtroom drama by Ayn Rand, and “Alice in Wonderland” as a public school tour. “It’s My Line Anyway!” is their final project for the year.

Schoolhouse Arts Center at Sebago Lake is located at the intersections of Rt 114 and 35 in Standish.

Upcoming events and programs include a Shakespeare performance workshop of “A Midsummer Nights Dream,” “Annie,” a 2-week summer arts camp and a theater performance camp.
