Senior citizens Samuel Jones and Laura Curtis, a widower and a widow, strike up a love affair. When they announce plans to live together without marrying so they can keep their social security benefits they’d otherwise lose, their children hit the ceiling even though they were never close to their deceased parent and their own marriages leave a lot to be desired. Sam’s daughter is married to her ex analyst, a stuffy neurotic, and Laura’s son has a wife who is paranoid about food additives and their sexual performance. All end well for the elderly twosome, but not before the entire second generation is in nervous fits.

Based on Robert Fulghum’s best selling book, 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 live piano underscoring, which provides fluidity, charm, and emotional texture, and seven original songs. 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 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 existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age. Kindergarten is a sure hit for almost any performing group.
