Coping with Sibling Rivalry in "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" at Kelsey Theatre Nov. 21


West Windsor, N.J. -- Peter Warren Hatcher and his little brother, Fudge, have a bad case of sibling rivalry. Two Beans Productions, by special arrangement with Theatreworks/USA, chronicles their struggles in "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing," coming to Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Based on the popular children's book by Judy Blume, the play follows the trials of nine-year-old Peter, who has a tough time coping with his troublesome younger brother, Fudge - whether it's Fudge's tantrum in the shoe store, his refusal to open his mouth at the dentist's office or, worst of all, ruining Peter's third birthday party. And to top it off, Fudge gets all the attention, while Peter gets all the blame. It's enough to make a kid feel like a fourth grade nothing!

Theatreworks/USA 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.
