Forget about Peter Hatchet...Sheila is the real star

Why See Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great?

Introducing...Sheila Tubman!

Peter Hatcher's sworn enemy was the star of her own Judy Blume novel in 1972, and now she gets her own stageplay adaptation! Much loathed by audiences, Sheila Tubman was the scourge of the Fudge novels, reviled by Peter as a "know it all" and a coward. But her story is vastly more complicated than you can imagine; forced to deal with a staggering phobia of dogs, water, spiders and the dark, you will soon discover the more human side of Sheila over the course of one summer vacation.

Enrolled in a summer day camp by her parents in Tarrytown, Sheila is thrown into a hive of activity when she befriends the tomboyish Merle "Mouse" Ellis and forced to confront her fear of dogs when she is faced with the family pooch at the house where they are living. Taking part in swimming, nature walks and even forming a camp newspaper, she puts her fearless mask on, hoping to get through the summer. But pride comes before a fall, and Sheila finds that facing her fears is better than hiding. A great way to get kids to engage with their true selves!
