More than just a series of events, these stories and songs celebrate our very existence.
Shoestring ties it all together brilliantly to reflect a little light onto what is already inside us all! Theatrical storytelling at its best!

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

Shoestring Players—Tom Hendry Warehouse

If you haven’t had a chance to see All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, do not miss your chance before it ends. One of the more popular shows at the Fringe, Winnipeg’s Shoestring does it again. This group never fails to bring quality to whatever they do. My friend summed it up after yesterday’s Warehouse show: “There is nothing else like this at the Fringe. It is unique.” So, if you want a cracker go see “Kindergarten,” you’ll laugh, you’ll cry. YOU WILL ALSO LEARN!

This show is a gem!

A beautiful storytelling show presented with heartfelt honesty, metaphor and song. We are taken on a journey through a selection of memories and stories, all reflecting important lessons in life. We get to be reminded of our earliest perspectives on the world and our belief in our ability to do anything. Learning how to navigate the world together, experiencing wonder and remembering to share, apologize, and flush. Yet we often forget what truly living life means as we get older and we are shown how growing up changes our perspectives on life. I saw myself in every story, reminiscing similar experiences and important lessons of my own, and I laughed and wept in equal measure.

This show has so much heart and is sincerely relatable and validating. An adult cast of all ages reminds us that regardless of where we are in our life’s journeys, revisiting how we saw the world as a kid always has a wealth of wisdom to offer us all. I highly recommend for anyone looking to reacquaint themselves with their inner child, and to share a beautiful moment of connection with one another despite the stories not being exactly our own. We learnt the most essential lessons early in life and are better for the reminder after leaving this show. The title couldn’t be more accurate, and overall the show is wonderful and endearing. I absolutely loved it.
