Childsplay presents Sideways Stories From Wayside School, a play adapted from Louis Sachar’s popular Wayside School children’s novels. At Wayside School, nothing is normal. Not only did the builder accidentally put each classroom one on top of the other, but the students of the 30th floor have a problem: Their teacher has the power to turn children into apples! Take a zany journey through the halls and stairways of Wayside School as the students of the 30th floor try their best to navigate the temptation of pulling pigtails lest they turn into snakes, the non-existent 19th floor, a wayward cow and other challenges – including accepting one another for who they are. Backstage tours are available for a nominal fee after some shows. So head to Tempe Center for the Arts to show the kids just how fun school can be with a little imagination!
