to Eat Like a Child” and Other Tips at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre
musical comedy just for kids – and anyone who was once a kid!
– comes to MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre in January. The Kelsey
Players perform “How To Eat Like a Child (and Other
Lessons in NOT Being a Grown-Up)” on Friday, Jan.
20 at 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 21 and 22 at 2 and 4
p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer’s West
Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Based on the popular book by screenwriter and
author Delia Ephron, “How to Eat Like a Child” is
a hilarious romp through the joys and sorrows of childhood. Young
performers offer up a series of “lessons,” taught
through songs and skits, on key topics: how to beg for a dog,
how to torture your sister, how to respond after being sent to
your room, how to stay home from school, and how to watch more
television. The pace is fast, the tone charmingly subversive,
and the recognition among youngsters instant.
The all-child cast includes: Molly Barson, Matthew
Blazejewski, Jordan Carroll, Rebecca Gerecke, Jessica Getlik,
Connor Gibson, Andrew Grunther, Matt Layber, Ryan Nierstedt, Claire
Norden, Pierce Rolli, Samantha Satnick, Arden Walker and Alyssa
Wilkins. The show is directed by Paula Barson with musical direction
by Charlene Angelini.
