La Crosse, WI – 05/16/18 – La Crosse Community Theatre announces that tickets go on sale Monday, May 21, 2018 for Ramona Quimby.

Beezus, our narrator, introduces us to the Quimby family and friends in this collection of vignettes that trace her little sister Ramona’s tumultuous passage through third grade. Ramona is usually either aggravating her older sister, getting into trouble or “making a big, noisy, fuss” when things don’t go her way. Although Ramona and Beezus don’t always get along, they come to realize that amazing things can happen when families stick together.
“Ramona Quimby was a staple of my childhood books. I just seemed to understand Ramona and her rambunctious and imaginative personality. She taught me that anything is possible and that although family is not always easy, if you stick together, there is nothing you can’t do. I encourage you to come out and experience the magic of theatre through Ramona’s eyes,” said LCT Producing Artistic Director, Grant Golson.
