LEWISTON – The Public Theatre and The Robinson Players of Bates College will collaborate on a production of “Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing” to be performed May 19, 20, 21 and 22, as the final production in TPT’s 2007-08 student matinee series.

This popular book by Judy Blume is a humorous look at family life and the troubles that can be caused by only a younger sibling. This series of escapades is geared to students from kindergarten through grade 6 who can, no doubt, relate to Peter Hatcher’s struggles dealing with his impossible little brother, Fudge.

The production will be directed by a professional director provided by TPT, who will collaborate with a cast of actors made up of Bates College students.

“Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing” will be presented at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. all four days. Tickets to all student matinee performances are $5 each.

Other student matinees in TPT’s 2008 season include “Well” at 9:30 a.m. March 11-12, recommended for grade 8 and up; “Over The River and Through the Woods,” at 9:30 a.m. May 6-7, recommended for grade 5 and up.
