Northwest Children’s Theater
March 31, 2006; closes April 8, 2006
Look out — this children’s theatre is growing up. Pumped-up staging featured outstanding hands-on wrestling sequences coached by Bryce Wescott, pinned by undaunted young ensemble that clearly did its homework. Fearless physicality, genuine presence checked occasionally false-ish dialogue back into reality. Post-play forum — with actors continuing in character — tagged audience reaction.
