Based on Art Linkletter's bestselling book. Book and lyrics by Robert Johanson. Music and lyrics and orchestration by Albert Evans.
Cast: 2m., 2w., 1 either gender, expandable as desired. If you want a play that will keep your audiences in stitches—this is the play for you. Concocted from the actual zany and oddly wise things that kids under the age of 12 have said, this rollicking entertainment covers all the bases: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" "How did your mommy and daddy fall in love?" "Do you have any pets … brothers … sisters … secret ambitions?" "What would you say to the president?" It is filled with the innocent wisdom that comes out of the "mouths of babes" and reminds us to look at the world with a kid's view. This amazingly simple and flexible play can be performed with or without music—with a large or small cast. It is based on the hilarious best-selling book Kids Say the Darndest Things by Art Linkletter, inspired by the TV show House Party which ran 26 years, hosted by Mr. Linkletter. This number one bestseller sold over 4 million copies, not to mention the numerous sequels. Adults or children can play the kids' roles. There is also a singing chorale that can either be performed by the kids themselves or an added chorus. This very funny family entertainment will be vastly enjoyed by your audiences. Get ready to laugh, laugh, laugh, when Kids Say the Darndest Things! Bare stage w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
An accompaniment CD is available for use with this show. See Rental Info for details.
