Over the Tavern
by Tom Dudzick
Friday, March 7 to Sunday, April 6
This heartwarming coming-of-age comedy set in the 1950s features 12-year-old Rudy Pazinski, who deals with the growing pains of family life and a wooden-ruler-wielding nun who is not to be trifled with. He believes we were put on earth to have fun and thinks his family doesn't know the meaning of the word! By sharing this family's laughter and tears we find that everyone has something to learn, even from the very young. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
