Best Bets: Sehome High presents musical version of Robert Fulghum's 'Kindergarten' book

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDMarch 11, 2014 

Sehome High School presents a musical version of "All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten," based on Robert Fulghum's book of the same name, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 13-16, at the school's Little Theatre, 2700 Bill McDonald Parkway.

Fulghum was a Unitarian Universalist minister at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship from 1960 to 1964, and was a founding member of the authors' collective band The Rock Bottom Remainders. In his best-selling book, he lists lessons normally learned in kindergarten and conveys how the world might be improved if grown-ups followed the same principles, among them: play fair, share everything and live a balanced life.

All ages will enjoy the performance of theatrical storytelling, monologues and music in a funny, insightful, and heartwarming look at what is profound in everyday life.

Vicki Chaney directs. Tickets available at the door, $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
