Oh brother! Peter Hatcher's life would be sweet if it weren't for his annoying little brother, Fudge.

Fudge (Jackson Gabby) scribbles on Peter's (Crey Abbas) homework. He pretends he's a bird and ends up falling off the jungle gym and knocking out his front teeth. Grownups think Fudge is cute, while they ignore Peter. Fudge gets away with everything, while Peter gets the blame. It's enough to make a guy feel like a fourth grade nothing! When Peter's turtle, Dribble, disappears, he knows Fudge is to blame. Can he get his parents (Peter Dean, Rebecca Masucci) to listen?

"Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" is based on the popular book by Judy Blume. The Playhouse cast is directed by David VanCleave. The cast includes Jim Arthur, Alexis Beyer, Lee Cutler, Caitlyn Dean, Susan Eisenhour, Spencer Gilbert, Noah Hackbart, and Carrie Hardisty.

The Playhouse is Iowa's oldest and largest producing theatre. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
