Northwest Children’s Theater
February 10, 2006; closes February 26, 2006
Uneven, tousled, but also endearing, entertaining; short-and-sweet without being overproduced. Stephen Alexander directs with smirking flair. Skilled leads nearly over-polished to the point of fake veneer while younger-though-no-less-earnest counterparts still rather rough-hewn, though lilting voice of Bryan Hunt was welcome surprise; adorable Cameron Peart nearly stole show. Silly heart-warming fun.
