About the Show:

Wayside School is sideways. That’s how the builder built it. Instead of making thirty classrooms side by side, he built them one on top of the other, which explains why all kinds of crazy things happen there – especially to Myron, Bebe, Leslie, Rondi and Dameon, who attend class on the thirtieth floor. You’ll also get to meet Mrs. Gorf, the meanest teacher at Wayside School, the delightful Mrs. Jewls, and Louis, the yard teacher. And, if you’re curious, you might get to find out what happened to the nineteenth floor!

Rehearsal INFO:

Rehearsal schedules are generally two or three evenings during the week, and a weekend afternoon. All cast members are expected for all performances, with no exception since the company does not cast understudies.

About the Studio Presentation Series:

The Studio Presentation Series initiated in the fall of 2009 has succeeded in engaging both patrons and artists.  Targeted for specific-aged audiences rather than the wide-reaching family fare of the Main Stage, the series provides community artists with a unique opportunity to participate in the creative process of “trying out” new, more experimental works under the direction of emerging professional artists. This program allows our company to both cultivate new talent and challenge audiences.
