Friday To-Do: 'Ramona Quimby'

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2008 at 10:52 AM

‘RAMONA QUIMBY'
7 p.m., Arkansas Children's Theatre. $10-$14. 

The Children's Theatre closes its season with a modern classic, the stage adaptation of Beverly Cleary's Newbery-winning “Ramona Quimby.” The story, Cleary's fifth in the series, finds Ramona at age 8 and in the third grade. She's having a tough time. She doesn't like her teacher, her Dad has lost his job and her older sister Beezus, as ever, gets on her nerves. When things don't go her way, she's known to make “a big, noisy fuss.” A classmate provokes her, she blows up and she's sent home in shame. Meanwhile, the Quimbys deal with issues familiar to any family: steady sibling bickering, a parent trying to quit smoking and preparing for a family wedding. Of course, Ramona, in the end, overcomes all struggles and hurdles and learns valuable lessons. Maybe you will, too. The show runs through May 18.
