Pearl Theater brings Robert Fulghum’s best seller to life “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” opens May 16, 2014

 Pearland Theatre Guild’s production of Robert Fulghum’s All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten runs May 16 – June 1, 2014.

April 8, 2014 - Houston, TX Pearl Theater will end its 2013/2014 season with a bang by bringing to life Robert Fulghum’s bestselling, “All I Really Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten”.

What started out as an essay, turned best seller, turned stage adaptation, All I Really Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten remains popular because of its witty and undeniably charming look into ‘everyman’.

Utilizing a multi-generational cast to weave the funny, insightful and heartwarming tales, director Robyn LeGris hopes to provide audiences with many ‘Aha’ moments as they recognize times and people in their own life. “I love that we were able to cast both young and young at heart in this production, having a wide range of ages really adds to the authenticity of the stories.”

If you have read Robert Fulghum’s books, you will recognize many of the delightful characters such as: a shy little boy who insists on playing the "pig" in his class production of Cinderella; 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. If you have not read his books, you can be assured that these stories celebrate our very existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age.

"* * * * FOUR STARS....So full of heart and wisdom that it will bring a tear to your eye and a lump to your throat time and time again...All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten is heartwarming, charming, funny and true. And if theater is meant to touch your heart and change the way you see things, then this qualifies for that too."   -The Indianapolis (IN) Star

"Disarmingly simple stories that invite the re-birth of wonder and the recovery of innocence lost...The result is a loose-leaf diary of life."    -Sunday News, Lancaster PA
