If you are planning to catch a performance of Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s summer family show “Sideways Stories from Wayside School,”  you will see a familiar face among its cast members, Greg Delbo, a member of the Class of 2016. Greg plays the part of Myron, a student at Wayside School, "the wacky school that’s 30 stories high," and where "there’s no such thing as an ordinary day."  Greg was first introduced to BTE through his participation in Southern Columbia Area's Gifted Enrichment Program. Greg participated in workshops with BTE actress Elizabeth Dowd while he was in elementary and middle school. Through the years, Greg continued to stay in touch with Ms. Dowd, and this spring, Greg audtioned and was asked to play the part of Myron.  
Based on a series of books by children’s author Louis Sachar, the play will run through July 19th with performances 1:00 and 7:00 PM Thursdays and Fridays; 7:00 PM Saturdays; 3:00 PM Sundays; 1:00 PM Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Greg will be appearing in the following upcoming performances: Friday, July 10th 7:00 PM; Sunday, July 12th 3:00 PM; Wednesday, July 15th 1:00 PM; Friday, July 17th 7:00 PM; Saturday, July 18th 7:00 PM; and Sunday, July 19th 3:00 PM.
You can buy tickets or receive more information about this and other BTE prodcutions by calling (570) 784-8181 or visiting www.bte.org. BTE performs at the Alvina Krause Theatre, 226 Center Street in Bloomsburg.
