Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Like, OMG, 12 members of the MTYP Theatre School are trying to show that not all stereotypes about teenagers are accurate through 75 minutes of sketches, monologues and music.
Misconception features an old man complaining about kids having no respect and laughing at him while they are really talking about volunteering. In Turning Tables, it’s the paranoid parents who are the problem.
Not every segment has a message — some are merely fun with Social Media and Hannah’s Guide to Dating getting the most LOLs. A car ride with grandma listening to the radio went on a bit too long, but had a great payoff, while the game show Daily Decisions won’t earn any prizes.
The talented and energetic cast may not be able to totally change your perceptions about the under-20 set, but if you think teens are lazy, uncreative and unprofessional, think again, because these kids are all right.
— Rob Williams
