In this delightfully demented comedy about the strangest school ever built, the students of Wayside School battle supernatural teachers, endure madcap lessons, and have more fun in class than the law should allow! Sideways Stories from Wayside School is based on the best-selling series of novels by Louis Sachar, the Newberry Award-winning author of Holes.
Directed by David R. Kilpatrick
David marks the end of his fifth season at La Crosse Community Theatre with this production. He is grateful of the opportunity to direct a Theatre for Youth production. Although he directed and costumed for Peter and the Wolf with LSO, this is his first full-length youth production with LCT. David’s recent directing productions include A Charlie Brown Christmas and Some Enchanted Evening. In addition to his production work as lighting designer and most recently performing, David also serves as executive director for both LCT and Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
Opened in 2013, the Lyche Theatre offers ample leg room and clear views of the stage from any of its 450 seats. Entrances and exits are centrally located and fully accessible for all.
