School holidays are drawing to a close and any youngsters who didn't have as much summer fun as Tom Sawyer did in the Mark Twain classic are being offered one last chance.

Next Saturday, the Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection, which specialises in bilingual drama productions and nurturing young talent, will be hosting its Summer One-Day Family Workshop.

Drama teachers Ruby Yong and Yolanda So will guide parents and their children (aged five and above) through scenes from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, about a mischievous boy who lives by America's Mississippi River.

The class includes auditions for the final performance, which will conclude the day-long workshop. Participants will also create props, sets and costumes.

The workshop (which costs HK$300 per participant) will be conducted mainly in English, with some Cantonese, and will run from 10am to 6pm at Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre (111 Shau Kei Wan Road, Sai Wan Ho). For inquiries, call 2520 1716 or e-mail
