Middle School Play Captures Inner-Child

In early March, MICDS 7th and 8th graders gave an outstanding performance of How to Eat Like a Child. The play is based on the book by Delia Ephron and was adapted for television by Judith Kahan with music and lyrics by John Forster.

Twenty-four MICDS students graced the Freeman Theatre stage as they gave twenty-three 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 performance highlighted the wonder of childhood and reminds us of what we forget as we get older.

“The play offered students an opportunity to play on stage—and that is joyous to behold,” said 7th Grade Dean and Fine Arts Faculty Member Charlotte Dougherty, who directed the play.
