“Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great”

Lakewood Cultural Center presents

ArtsPower National Touring Theatre’s




Lakewood Cultural Center presents ArtsPower National Touring Theatre’s “Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great” at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4 in the intimate 316-seat theater at 470 S. Allison Parkway at Wadsworth Boulevard and West Alameda Avenue. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students/seniors, $7 for children and are available by calling 303-987-7845, going online to www.Lakewood.org/CulturalCenter or visiting the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office. There is plenty of free, well-lit parking on-site.


ArtsPower returns to Lakewood with another lively original one-hour musical based on Judy Blume’s dynamic coming-of-age story about the pains of being a kid and discovering the person within. Children and adults will fall in love with Sheila and her friends as she learns that trials are, unfortunately, essential to growing up. This a perfect show for students grades second through sixth and their families.


As an award-winning and popular author, Blume has created an unlikely but extremely likable heroine in Sheila Tubman. Blume is best known for her children and young adult novels, including “It’s Me, Margaret,” “Tiger Eyes” and “Are You There, God?”
