Sideways Stories from Wayside School

adapted by adapted by John Olive & from the novels by Louis Sachar
directed by Brandy Austin
Three best-selling novels by Louis Sachar (Holes, There's A Boy in the Girls' Bathroom), SIDEWAYS STORIES FROM WAYSIDE SCHOOL tells the tale of an unusual school. Intead of being one story high with 30 classrooms, it's 30 classrooms stacked one on top of the other. (But they do have an extra large playground!) Some say the teachers and students at Wayside School are strange and silly...and so will you. This play encourages non-horizontal thinking, and is recommended for ages eight and up. Chicago Playworks presented Sachar’s popular There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom in 2005, and he also wrote the popular Newbery Medal-winning book turned into a movie Holes.
Recommended for ages eight and up.
