RJK to present "How to Eat Like a Child" Nov. 6

November 6, 2012

RJK students practice How to Eat Like a ChildThe RJK Middle School will present the musical “How to Eat Like a Child” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 6, in the Eugene D. Nesin Theatre for the Performing Arts. This one hour musical is based on the Viking book Delia Ephron, John Forster, and Judith Kahan with Music and Lyrics by John Forster.

The musical version began its life as an NBC prime time special starring Dick Van Dyke (the chimney sweep in MARY POPPINS). It was an immediate hit in schools, camps and community centers everywhere and has enjoyed thousands of productions all over the the US, Canada and many other countries where kids smuggle their least favorite vegetables to the garbage instead of eating them.

This musical romp through the joys and sorrows of being a child is hilarious. Children give 23 lessons in such subjects as how to beg for a dog, how to torture your sister, how to act after being sent to your room and how to laugh hysterically. The pace is fast, the tone subversive and the recognition instant.

Tickets are $5; students $3 and senior citizens are free.

“How to Eat Like A Child” is presented by special Arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
