“Sideways Stories from Wayside School” Features Quirky and Sometimes Scary Characters

RLT recommends “Sideways Stories from Wayside School” for children aged 5 and up: “This play is an adaptation of the strange stories with quirky and at times scary characters from Louis Sachar’s Wayside Series. This production relies heavily on the use of sound (organ music, thunder and lightning) and bold lighting. The play, though amusingly strange to most, may be a little frightening to younger children.”
