After preparing during a three-week theatre camp, 14 youth are performing a set of skits, some of their own creation and some based on classic works, this weekend at Pier One Theatre.
“From cheese shops with no cheese to passionate public speaking to puppets trying to sell you things and a small yet persistent feline with possible murderous intent, this year’s show promises to be – at the very least – unmissable and massively entertaining,” Director Clara Noomah said, adding that the evening showcases the dizzying creativity of some of Homer’s finest young actors.
“Despite its humble beginnings only three weeks ago, this show has grown so much that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security now views it as a revolutionary new weapon in the ongoing War on Things That Are Not Funny,” Noomah quipped.
The title of the show, “We Are Not Amused,” is a classic example of irony, saying the opposite of what one means.“We go for humor and not drama generally,” she said.
The ‘camp’ was held at the Mariner Theater and Pier One Theatre on the Spit.
This is Noomah’s second year as head director. She has served as assistant director several times and has been involved in Pier One Theatre since age eight, about 13 years, she said.
Casey Parrett, Kate Spence and Alder Fletcher are assistant directors for this show.
Show times are 7 p.m. Friday and 3 and 7 p.m. Saturday. Advance tickets are available at The Bookstore and Etude Studio. Call 235 7333 for reservations.
