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, enhanced through the use of music.  These stories celebrate our very existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age.

Audition Preparation

  • PLEASE NOTE: Despite the title, Kindergarten was written for adults.
  • Read the book! It's undoubtedly available at your local library. It's also on ThriftBooks for cheap!
  • Gather a list of ALL schedule conflicts between the audition date and final performance date (Apr 15 - Jun 16). This is important. The director will cast the show and finalize the rehearsal schedule based on provided conflicts. If you are cast, it is your obligation to adhere to the rehearsal schedule once it is set.
  • IF YOU WOULD LIKE A SINGING ROLE, please bring your backing track in MP3 format on a thumb drive. You must have (and bring your own) accompaniment. Please no a cappella.
  • If you have never auditioned with us, and/or if you have a lot of theatre credits, we encourage you to bring a theatre résumé with you to auditions. We've put together a basic theatre résumé template in Google Docs that you can copy and use as a guide. This is a generic guide only. Your résumé does not have to look like this!
