Genre: Kids
Adapted for Louis Sachar’s Wayside School Novels by John Olive, directed by Laura Stevens

Wayside School was accidentally build 30 stories high instead of 20 classrooms wide (the architect apologized). However, attending class on the 20th floor is even more strange than tiring! Teachers turn students into apples, reading is done by standing on one's head, pigtails come to life and computers get thrown out of the window to teach lessons in gravity! Manhattan Children's Theatre's production brings Sachar's stories to live in a fast-paced comedic setting that will entertain anyone who has ever sat in a classroom.
