Life with his little brother Fudge makes Peter Hatcher feel like a fourth grade nothing. Whether Fudge is throwing a temper tantrum in a shoe store, stealing the limelight in a television commercial or ruining his brother’s school project, he’s never far from trouble. He’s an almost three-year-old terror who gets away with everything, and Peter’s had it up to here! When Peter’s pet turtle goes missing, it’s the last straw. Peter has put up with Fudge for too long. Way too long! How can he get his parents to pay attention to him for a change? Based on the popular title by perennial favorite Judy Blume, 'Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing' is a humorous look at family life and the troubles that can only be caused by a younger sibling.

'Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing'  is under the direction of Artistic Director Brandon Thomsen, with scenic and lighting design by Technical Director Paul Denckla. Logan Giesing serves as the Stage Manager.
