[October 09, 2013]  Ever wondered if all that education beyond the kindergarten classroom was really worth it? The Lincoln Community High School cast of the fall production of Robert Fulgham's "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten" is ready to remind you of the great times of kindergarten and what has happened to all of us who have grown up.

The fall play will open Thursday at 7 p.m. and will be performed again on Friday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the LCHS auditorium. Intermission will feature a "kid"-themed concession stand with apples, milk, cookies and goldfish crackers. The ticket price and proceeds from the concessions will go to support the theater programs at LCHS.

The 22 vignettes feature short, fast-paced stories with poignant and sometimes humorous moments that tug the heartstrings.

More than 40 students are involved in the fall production, a difficult task during this season of the school year when competing with activities such as marching band and fall sports, including football and volleyball.

Additionally, seniors in the theater programs were given the opportunity to direct their peers in several of this show's vignettes, in addition to those directed by faculty members Jennifer Keith and Laura Schonauer.

Student directors are Natalia Shurtz, Haley Welch, Matthew Langdon, Brad Miller, Madison Bishop, Hannah Burton, Justin Broom, Konnor Browne and Joella Vermeire.
