Three Cheers for "Ramona Quimby"
At MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Oct. 15


9/21/11


West Windsor, N.J. -- One of children's literature's most exasperating, but lovable, characters comes to life at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. TheatreworksUSA/Two Beans Productions presents the brand new musical "Ramona Quimby" on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

In this fast-paced, inventive production, Beverly Clearly's highly imaginative third-grader finds that life is proving no picnic! Her older sister, Beezus, is a pain; her aunt Bea marries a dork; and her Dad just lost his job. Plus, Ramona suspects her teacher hates her. But with the help of her loving family and friends, Ramona learns important lessons as she faces her challenges. Young audiences will enjoy and identify with this spirited youngster navigating the waters of growing up.

TheatreworksUSA is America's largest and most prolific professional not-for-profit theatre for youth and family audiences. Since 1961, it has enlightened, entertained and instructed more than 78 million people in 49 states and Canada.

Tickets are $10 for all ages. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible. Free parking is available next to the theater.
