HERMISTON — Budding actors and actresses are invited to participate in the Children’s Community Theater program, which includes staging a comedy.

The class provides information on stage presence, voice control and acting techniques. The group will rehearse Oct. 2 through Nov. 15 for upcoming performances of “Fearsome Pirate Frank.”

Offered through Hermiston Parks & Recreation, the class will meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Hermiston Conference Center, 415 S. Highway 395. A pair of performances will be staged Saturday, Nov. 18.

The play centers around the star of a popular pirate play. Fearsome Pirate Frank is the teen heartthrob of every girl in Shakespearean England. However, he can’t seem to remember his lines. Laughs will be plentiful with the narrators and a stream of hilarious sign-carriers. The zany spoof also features pop culture, including an appearance by Spider-Man.

The cost is $50 for Hermiston residents or $63 for non-residents. The registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 15.

For more information, visit www.hermistonrecreation.com, call 541-667-5018 or stop by the recreation office at 180 N.E. Second St., Hermiston.
