Image: Ramona Quimby"Ramona Quimby," will be presented on Monday, May 21, at 10 a.m., in Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The show, a Theatreworks/USA production, is part of the Quick Center's outreach program, Schooldays Series, and is appropriate for children in Grades 1-6. A comprehensive study guide for teachers is available to enhance the learning experience.

Based on the well-loved books of Newbury Award winner Beverly Cleary, and adapted for the stage by Obie Award-winning playwright Len Jenkins, Theatreworks' new hour-long production of "Ramona Quimby" promises to be a box office winner.

Ramona's life is a mess! Her teacher hates her, her older sister Beezus is a pain, Aunt Bea may marry a dork and Dad just lost his job. Life is no picnic and growing up isn't easy. But with the help of her loving family and friends, Ramona takes on life's daily challenges - as audiences laugh and cheer her on - and emerges victorious.

Tickets are $5 for this outreach program. The Schooldays Series is funded in part by the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield, the Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation, Inc., Regina A. Quick, People's Bank and Schools in Partnership with Unilever H & PC. For information or tickets call the Quick Center box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
