Waypoint Theatre Company is presenting Robert Fulghum's "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten" April 11-14 and April 18-21 at Atria Bell Court Gardens' Academy Hall Theatre, 6653 E. Carondelet Drive (northeast of St. Joseph's Medical Center).
The comedy/drama features Waypoint regulars Tim Aalbu, Frank Gates, Elizabeth von Isser, Wayne McKinley, Burney Starks and Waypoint's artistic director, Melanie David.
According to a news release from the theater company, the production celebrates the 25th anniversary of Fulghum's best-selling essays and features colorful characters including 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, a mother of the bride who stages the perfect wedding, and a modern-day Greek philosopher who finds the "meaning of life" in a piece of broken mirror from World War II.
A performance at 7:30 p.m. April 18 will benefit the Rotary Sunrise Club to buy books for an elementary school reading program. Half of ticket proceeds will go to the nonprofit. The April 18 performance will also benefit the Tucson Sunshine Kiwanis Club to buy beads for the Beads of Courage program that gives special glass beads to seriously ill children and their families to offer encouragement and hope.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. April 11, 12, 18 (benefit performance) and 19 and 2:30 p.m. April 13, 14, 20 and 21.
