February 15 – Theatreworks USA present Ramona Quimby! Hold onto your hats as you follow the latest breathless adventure of the world’s most the exasperating but lovable third-grader. Ramona has been a favorite of elementary school readers since the 1955 publication of Newbery Award-winning writer Beverly Cleary’s Beezus and Ramona. She now comes to life on the stage in Two Beans Productions’ Ramona Quimby.
While intended to tickle the funny bone, the play also incorporates issues that touch on the lives of real families. Ramona’s life is a mess! Her teacher hates her, older sister Beezus is a pain. Aunt Bea may marry a dork, and Dad just lost his job. Life is no picnic, and growing up isn’t easy. But with the help of her loving and patient family and friends, Ramona takes on life’s daily challenges — as audiences laugh and cheer her on.
Theatreworks USA’s Ramona Quimby is the second in our Young People’s Performances series and will be presented on February 15, 2013.
