LCHS Fall Play opens Thursday
October 9, 2013, LINCOLN - 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," are ready to remind you of the great times of kindergarten and what has happened to all of us who have grown up.
Senior Matthew Langdon is the lone kindergartener without a part in the retelling of "Cinderella" in a scene from the LCHS fall production "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten," opening Thursday at 7 p.m. in the LCHS Auditorium. Additional performances are Friday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. All tickets are $5.
The fall play will open Thursday at 7 p.m. and has performances on Friday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the LCHS Auditorium. All tickets are $5 and intermission will feature a "kid" themed concession stand with apples, milk, cookies and goldfish crackers. All proceeds go to support the theatre programs at LCHS.
Over 40 students are involved in the fall production, a difficult task when competing with activities such as marching band and fall sports including football and volleyball during this season of the school year.
Additionally, seniors in the theatre 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.

Crew members include J. J. Orr, Claire Conrady, Emily Bergman, Megan Opperman, Alyssa Harpin, Tiffany Dooley, Courtney Miller, Cassie Warfel, Brittany Smith, Belle Smith, Livvie Muck, Kathryn Arneaud, Anna Walters, and Levi Townsend.
The 22 vignettes feature short, fast-paced stories with poignant and sometimes humorous moments that tug the heartstrings.
