Mom - The History Mystery, the latest offering by TADA! Youth Theater's young acting troop is definitely one of their best. This entertaining show is about three kids who travel back in time and meet up with famous people, such as, Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr. when they were just kids themselves before they became famous. One young girl even meets up with her own grandmother as a young girl. This timely show teaches kids that history matters, and that every person can make a difference. It does so in TADA!'s usual song-filled entertaining way making it a great show for all ages. The show is not very long either at just under an hour making it perfect for young children's short attention spans. All in all, the show is another great opportunity to see talented kids who may be the rising stars of tomorrow perform today.
I have been given a ticket to Unnecessary Farce for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are my own.
Mom - Unnecessary Farce at Kelsey Theatre is an entertaining show especially if you like bedroom farces. It is about a couple of cops on surveillance at a hotel trying to get evidence against an allegedly corrupt mayor. While the show has the typical conventions of a bedroom farce, such as, mistaken identities, slammed doors, and people in various state of undress, it was not completely predictable. There were some unusual elements to the plot including a cop who carries a water gun instead of a real gun and a hitman who can only kill people when he has played a song on his bag pipes (of course, nobody is really killed, nobody gets killed in a bedroom farce). The plot had some surprising twists as well which kept the show interesting. All in all, it is a pleasant way to spend an evening. The show will be playing for one more weekend.
