Soo Theatre Project Presents All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

The Soo Theatre Project is pleased to announce that All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten will be performed this weekend at the historic Soo Theatre. The production opens on Friday, July 6 at 7:30 p.m. and also plays on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Directed by Emily Couling, a 2007 graduate of Rudyard High School, Robert Fulgham's take on everyday life will have the audience laughing out loud.

The play stars Briana Kangas, Elizabeth Jacobus, Charles Rye, Alyssa Sexton, Samantha Tulgetske, and Stephan Winnicki.

From his best-selling book of short essays, in which he explains how the world would be improved if adults adhered to the basic rules that children learn in kindergarten, Fulgham has created a play of fast-moving skits.

"Kindergarten Creed" advises us to “hold hands when crossing the street” and to live "a balanced life" of work, play, and learning. "Stuff in the Sink" explains why it’s a lot easier to remain a child than to cross over into adulthood by reminding the audience of all the gross jobs adults have to do every day: clean the gunk out of the sink, empty the litter box, and many more.

"Mother of the Bride" will bring back a memory or two for anyone who ever planned the perfect wedding only to have it go awry. "Fear of Spiders" is another hilarious description of women’s fear of the eight-legged creatures and also of a spider’s fear of women.

This production was first presented as Black Box Theatre at Rudyard High School in May. Now the drama students of James Taylor, RHS drama instructor, show off their stuff on the Soo Theatre’s larger stage.

Some lighting and 750 seats donated by Jim Wehr, owner of Mackinaw Crossings and the former Mackinaw Theater, have been installed for this season. Work on the theatre is ongoing, and the public is invited to stop in any time between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to see the progress, or begin volunteering to help.

The production is sponsored by the Soo Theatre Project, and proceeds from the show will go towards renovation of the theatre. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 8 and under.
