Play Synopsis

The play, performed by C of O students, is directed by Lisa Young, associate professor of theatre. Based on Robert Fulghum’s best-selling books, “Kindergarten” takes a funny, insightful, heartwarming look at what is profound in everyday life. The delightful stories feature colorful characters such as: a shy little boy who insists on playing the “pig” in his class production of Cinderella and steals the show; a man whose dream of flying carries him high over Los Angeles… in a lawn chair buoyed by surplus weather balloons; 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.
