Riverside Theatre Works is pleased to present Sideways Stories from Wayside School, a wacky, witty, kid-friendly play about a very unusual school.
Based on the award-winning children’s books by Louis Sachar, Sideways Stories is set at a school that, by mistake, was built tall instead of wide – leading to all sorts of skewed adventures. Wayside School is a place where pigtails talk, the kids on the 30th floor might get turned into apples (and back), and the teacher on the 19th floor might not exist.
Goofy and intelligent – just like the books – Sideways Stories is sure to delight both kids and adults. This mainstage production features special family-friendly ticket prices, as well as a Thursday matinee for school groups.
Performances will take place on February 27 at 10:30 a.m., February 28 at 7 p.m., March 1 at 7 p.m., and March 2 at 2 p.m., at 45 Fairmount Avenue, Hyde Park. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, go to www.rtwboston.org or call 1-866-811-4111.
“I can’t wait to see the looks in children’s eyes when they see this silly world unfold onstage,” said Marietta Phinney, Riverside Theatre Works’ founding director. “We’re hoping Sideways Stories helps kids discover the joy of theater, and inspires them to come back for more.”
