Heartfelt amateur play. Some could act; some could not. Some could sing; some could not. Some could dance; some could not. The songs were catchy, but just seemed to run up and down the major scale. Jip, the lead actor captured my attention, and had some stage presence. The set was quite interesting. The backstage crew needs to learn to KEEP STILL, and not be opening back doors, roaming around, and conferring with each other during the performance. It was very distracting and very disrespectful to the actors.
All in all, it was the sort of show that parents and friends of the actors would like, but an outsider might not be that captivated by.
MYT remounts its popular 2005 production of Katherine Paterson’s historical novel about a 1850s Vermont boy caught in a web of racial and class prejudice. Jip knows only that he was left on the side of the road when he was a toddler and brought up on a poor farm. Who are his parents? Where is he from? When Jip discovers the truth, his whole life is changed.
