KENOSHA — Lakeside Players will stage “Ramona Quimby” Friday through Sunday, Dec. 15-17, at Rhode Center for the Arts, 514 56th St.
Always aggravating her older sister, Beezus, Ramona Quimby is constantly getting into trouble and sometimes “making a big, noisy fuss” when things don’t go her way. As narrator, Beezus (Beatrice Quimby) introduces the Quimby family and friends and sets the scene for the collection of vignettes that trace Ramona’s tumultuous passage through third grade and through her family relationships.
At school, she throws a tantrum when provoked by a classmate and is sent home in disgrace. The teacher’s wrath, an important family wedding, persistent sibling bickering and Mr. Quimby’s attempts to give up smoking are part of the fabric that shape a humorous, loving family portrait.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 3 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets cost $10. Go to www.rhodecenter.org.
