Kids Act!, a summer theater workshop program for children ages 6 to 16, will take place at the Christian Center, 193 Robbins Ave., from 2 to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 30 through Aug. 29.

The workshops will be taught by Sally Filkins, director of Pittsfield’s VOICES Theater company, and playwright-in-residence for Berkshire Historical Society.

Children will learn theater skills through a series of entertaining "hands on" activities. Workshop participants will also learn visual arts skills by creating scenery and costumes for their final production.

The program is being offered free for Pittsfield residents with priority for enrollment given to children living in the West Side and Morningside neighborhoods.

As enrollment is limited to 20, it is strongly encouraged that families contact the Christian Center at (413) 443-2828 or stop as soon as possible.
