Beloved Children’s Book Character Comes to Life in Play at FSU

Beloved Children’s Book Character Comes to Life in Play at FSU

TheatreworksUSA “Ramona Quimby” performance Feb. 24 at University

Audience members of all ages are invited to get to know the world’s most animated elementary school student during a special children’s theatre performance of “Ramona Quimby,” presented by TheatreworksUSA at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on the Frostburg State University campus.

Ramona, the exasperating but lovable third-grader who has delighted young readers for the last 40 years in the books of Newbery Award-winning writer Beverly Cleary, now comes to life on the stage in this spirited production. 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 older sister Beezus is a pain, her Aunt Bea may marry a dork and Dad just lost his job. She even thinks that her teacher hates her. Life is no picnic, and growing up isn’t easy. But with the help of her loving and patient family and friends, Ramona faces these challenges—as audiences laugh and cheer her on.

“Ramona Quimby” is a one-hour performance. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the FSU Cultural Events Box Office at (301) 687-3137 or toll free at 1-866-TIXX-CES, or visit online at ces.frostburg.edu.

FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services, and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. You may request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office at (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
