Aberdeen Community Theatre presents a Young People's Theatre production of "HOW TO EAT LIKE A CHILD" April 12-16, 2023

A hilarious musical romp through the joys and sorrows of being a child! Young actors give twenty-three lessons in such subjects as how to beg for a dog, how to torture your sister, how to act after being sent to your room, and how to laugh hysterically. The songs are charming, the pace is fast, and the jokes are delightful. “How to Eat Like a Child” is based on the Viking book of the same name by beloved author Delia Ephron.
