Judy Blume’s “Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great” is being performed at Chandler, by children’s theater company, ArtsPower.

Friday, Jan. 26, 10 a.m.—RANDOLPH— Judy Blume’s poignant children’s novel, “Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great,” comes alive in a sparkling musical rendition at the Chandler Center for the Arts on Friday, Jan. 26, at 10 a.m. The staging of Blume’s popular novel is the third of four events in Chandler’s Daytime Performance Series for 2017-18 — a quartet of theater, music, and dance performances offered especially for regional schools, teachers, students, and home-schoolers.

Sheila Tubman is the quintessential Judy Blume character, struggling with all the trials and tribulations of childhood. Being a 10-year-old kid is a pain. Having an older sister is really a pain. So, too, is being afraid of virtually everything in life. Sheila — also known as the self-styled Sheila the Great — comes of age in this enchanting musical version of Judy Blume’s touching story, adapted by the award-winning children’s theater company, ArtsPower.

Schools attend daytime performances at Chandler as a group. Home schoolers — and members of the general public of all ages — are also welcome to attend these daytime events, which are offered at lower ticket prices thanks to their being subsidized by grants, sponsors, and generous local donors. This performance is especially recommended for students in grades 2-6.

For group or general admission tickets and more information, contact 802-728-6464 or visit chandler-arts.org. Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main Street, Randolph.
