Foolish, Wise and Magical

 

Review


There is something tawdry, it should go without saying, about critiquing children’s theatre. After all, how can you really pass judgement on people who are only just getting started in what is (potentially) a lifelong relationship with the stage? I suppose it all comes down to spotting promise, and in Caraway Story Theatre’s Foolish, Wise, and Magical, there is a lot of it. The goal of Caraway is both to educate and entertain, telling two folktales from Indonesia and Poland respectively. Despite the stilted delivery (they are kids, after all) they’re relatively effective in their efforts. They’ve been well taught in how to utilize their space and surroundings effectively, along with some tongue in cheek props (the ensemble waving stalks of wheat to represent a field, for instance). Obviously, this is not one for the masses. This isn't even for people who need to kill time. Foolish is about supporting kids getting into the arts and learning about a new culture. What could be wrong with that? Reviewed by Buchanan Hunter.

    Foolish, Wise & Magical is just that. It’s wholly entertaining, funny and fantastically acted by students. I highly recommend this for families and anyone who enjoys good clean fun.
