Free Kids Week activities are planned July 8-12 at the Lamp Theatre in Irwin.

Kids who are interested in all aspects of theater — and more — are invited to take part in free activities planned for July 8-12 at the Lamp Theatre in Irwin.

The sessions will include acting, dance and voice instruction and a daily workshop to rehearse for a showcase on the final day.

The schedule includes:

• July 8: Screening of “The Lorax” (rated PG), acting class and workshop

• July 9: Yoga class, dance class and workshop

• July 10: Live science show, voice class and workshop

• July 11: Puppet show, craft session and workshop

• July 12: Workshop and showcase.

Classes will include separate sessions for children ages 5-8 and 9-14.

Children must be registered for each separate class or program they would like to attend. Space is limited in some sessions.

A parent or guardian is required to accompany the child to the movie screening, science show and puppet show/craft activity.

To perform in the showcase, participants must take an acting, dance or voice class, but class participants are not required to perform in the showcase.

Admission will be $5 for the showcase.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
