The rehearsal schedule will be determined upon casting, but tentatively will be 4 to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.

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 Newbery Award-winning author of Holes, and adapted for the stage by John Olive.
