Twilight Tales

Northwest Children's Theatre/Teens NW
October 24 - November 1, 2008

Review by peanutduck

Teens NW’s Twilight Zone-inspired quartet spooks with ghost, monster-under-the-bed fare; and, squirmishly for adult audience, reminders of angst, peer pressure, ambiguities, dorky parents. Understandably, teen performances uneven - evening is skill building exercise – but, scripts, direction often give them little to work with. Observe closely for ‘ah-ha!’ flashes of potential.

So why is Peanut Duck reviewing this?

This was explained last year (and I believe has been again since). See for some detail.

It is a show. Perhaps I misrepresented it by referring to it as an exercise.
