48 All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten

Directors Workshop

This workshop is for people who want to learn about directing volunteer performers. It is for beginning or novice directors.
We will:
  • Develop a vision from a script
  • Plan a show
  • Audition
  • Rehearse
  • Present a play
There is limited space for the workshop. Cost free.
Here is your chance to learn some of the ins and outs of directing volunteer performers in a community theatre setting (including church, summer camp, a dinner program, or fund raiser). This is a WORKSHOP for adults who have never directed or feel that they have a lot to learn. We will be working on a show and discussing how to plan, manage people, and create a compelling presentation.

The Director's Workshop is an opportunity for beginners and novices to learn about directing volunteer actors; either in community theatre, school, church or local organization. Because this workshop is for leaders, we expect your full participation. You will be directing actors.



Robert Fulghum's All I Really Need to Know I Learned In Kindergarten
October 26, 27    2012
Friday at 6:00 and 8:00 pm / Saturday at 2:00, 6:00 and 8:00 pm

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, with monologues, dialogues, and multiple voice narration. The delightful stories feature colorful characters such as: a shy little girl who insists on playing the "pig" in his class production of Cinderella and steals the show; a "mother of the bride" who's staged a perfect wedding—until the bowling ball of fate rolls down the aisle; and a modern-day Greek philosopher who finds the meaning of life in a piece of broken mirror from World War II. These stories 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 
"A lighthearted, beautifully styled dramatization of Fulghum's writings." —Syracuse Herald Journal
