Tumbling After

MTYP Summer Studio—MTYP – Richardson Hall

“Tumbling After” is a great opportunity to catch up with your favourite fairy tale characters just as they are about to graduate high school. They have all grown up, except perhaps the Frog Prince who is still more frog than prince. Their last days at school are fraught with drama. A wolf-related lockdown interrupts Captain Hook, the shops teacher, as he struggles to teach a sex-ed class (mostly hand holding).

Fast forward a few years and trouble is brewing. Many questions need answers. Who is killing all the Jacks? Who puts a well at the top of a hill? Who cleans Puss in Boots’ litterbox? All is revealed at a spirited and hilarious clip by MTYP’s Theatre School Summer Studio. Solid comedy chops from all in this company!

I’m always a fan of fairy tales, in nearly every context, so this was a no brainer for me. These kids took to the script beautifully, many of them going from character to character and back again without hesitating, and sometimes very quickly. I can only imagine what the backstage looked like. While not yet professional, they all held themselves as such, and never once did the puns get tedious, as they so often can threaten to. These a long and bright road ahead for all of these kids.

With classic characters in less classic situations -this is a dark comedy where the fairytales aren’t the only thing to get fractured. Do you think you’ve heard this one before? Well we got wolf attacks, forced gnome labour, sex ed taught by a pirate, the Boogie Man, a serial killer and the moral is, sometimes life really does lead to and astonishing implosion. We just gave away the moral? Oh My Goose! But you should see it live onstage!
