Synopsis

Welcome to Klickitat Street, home of Henry Higgins, his faithful dog Ribsy, Ramona the Pest, and her long-suffering sister Beezus. Newbery Award-winning author Beverly Cleary's irrepressible hero saves the day in this adaptation of one of the best-loved children's book series of all time. Ten-year-old Henry wants to do something important; he wants to deliver newspapers, just like that showoff Scooter McCarthy and the other boys. But first Henry has to prove to his parents he can handle the responsibility. That won't be easy with Ramona Quimby around! Then when the boys form a clubhouse excluding girls, Henry's friendship with Beezus is tested and the girls wreak their hilarious revenge. All of Henry's most memorable adventures are here including riding to the dump in a bathtub and getting his first bike. Along the way, with the "help" of Ramona, he learns some valuable lessons about friendship and maturity. Henry and Ramona captures the everyday trials and triumphs of being a kid.

Customer Reviews

"This is a great show for all ages as it brings back the era of newspaper deliveries, clubhouses and friendships for life!"
Review by Patch Clark, East Carolina University, Greenville, N.C.
"Very light and lively, a real crowd pleaser. Popular with audiences of all ages. A tribute to Beverly Cleary and her many admirers."
Review by Christopher Rees, Chugiak High School, Eagle River, Alaska
"We had a lot of fun doing Henry and Ramona. The activity in between scenes kept the play lively. We were able to use bicycles, a claw-foot bathtub and real kittens for the play. The kittens were a big hit!"
Review by Margaret Nolt, Hinkletown Mennonite School, Ephrata, Pa.
"Henry and Ramona was a smash hit with our youth as well as our adult audiences. Casting the dog was a brilliant idea; the girl who played it practically stole the show."
Review by Walter Williams, Master Arts Theatre, Grand Rapids, Mich.
