Sideways Stories.jpgA teacher who zaps children into apples, an eccentric dance teacher, two talking pigtails, a mysterious and spooky substitute teacher and 14 students who ride the wave of this zaniness. Watertown Children’s Theatre’s Play Factory presents "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," a play based on the very popular series by Louis Sachar. Wayside School was accidentally built sideways. It was supposed to be only one story high, with thirty classrooms all in a row. Instead, it is thirty stories high, with one classroom on each story! Maybe that's why all kinds of funny things happen at Wayside -- especially on the thirtieth floor. An ensemble cast of 3rd - 5th graders brings this childhood favorite to life. Fri.,. May 17, 7 p.m.; Sat., May 18, 1 p.m.; Sun., May 19, 1 p.m. $10, plus online ticket service fee. Black Box Theater, Arsenal Center for the Arts, 321 Arsenal St., Watertown.
