Combining classical Commedia dell'arte mask work with modern sketch comedy, throw in some mime, clown, music and drive!
—Marjorie Malpass, actor
You've taken a bus right? Unless you are so rich that you've had a car and driver since birth or are home-schooled by radical environmentalists who eschew all but walking and bicycles, you have been on a bus.
So have I, which is why it's so easy to be in this play at Manitoba Theatre for Young People. The Number 14 is about a bus and everyone who takes it. Six actors playing over forty characters, it gets very sweaty backstage. We work hard to entertain you. Combining classical Commedia dell'arte mask work with modern sketch comedy, throw in some mime, clown, music and drive!
Theatre for young audiences is a special treat. Kids are bussed in from all around Winnipeg, every demographic and area is represented in one room. The public shows have multi-generations of parents, grandparents and kids. And they all share a laugh.
