Cast Announced for Ramona Quimby

The Forest Hills Eastern theatre department will be putting on a production of Ramona Quimby early this November. Based on the book series by Beverly Cleary, the play is about a troublesome third-grader named Ramona Quimby who lives with her parents and her older sister, Beezus. We watch as Ramona handles a myriad of problems, from her teacher’s dislike, her father’s firing, her aunt’s unsatisfactory fiancé, and her tumultuous relationship with her sister. The show is a humorous depiction of a family that realizes the importance of sticking together through hard times.
