Students in the Acting 12 class at Summerland Secondary School will stage a play based on an essay about simple truths in life.

Students in the Acting 12 class at Summerland Secondary School will stage a play based on an essay about simple truths in life.

The play, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, is based on Robert Fulghum’s short essay of the same name. The essay, along with Fulghum’s other writings, cover observations about everyday life.

Heather Ayris, drama teacher at the school, said the play follows several characters from Kindergarten to old age.

“This is a play I’ve wanted to do for a while,” she said. “The writing is absolutely lovely. It’s one of the best-written scripts I’ve seen in a long time.”

The play has a large cast with 30 students involved.

Ayris said this play is the last time the students will perform as high school students. She has worked with them since they entered high school in Grade 9 and has watched them grow as actors.

She added that the students have been enthusiastic about staging the play.

The play will be shown at Centre Stage Theatre on May 10 and 11 at 7 p.m. Admission is by donation.
