Based on Robert Fulghum's best-selling books, Kindergarten takes a funny, insightful, heartwarming look at what is profound in everyday life. This tightly woven adaptation has earned standing ovations from Singapore to Prague— from L.A. to D.C. It's an evening of theatrical storytelling in revue format, which celebrate our very existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age.

"Heartwarming, charming, funny and touching. The stories are about all of us." —National Public Radio

"A refreshingly intimate combination of theatre and storytelling. Gentle…funny…joyous. Sparks of recognition ignited the audience." —The Chicago Sun-Times

Directed by Joe Keach-Longo
