Here’s a bit about the play
Ready or not here I come! is a musical play written about the adolescent years. It is a fun energetic piece that touches on the extremities of emotion and conflict one can experience experience throughout that time. It incorporates a modern score with lyrics borrowed from well known sayings and nursery rhymes, paving the steps from childhood to adulthood.
Here’s the Synopsis
This is an abstract piece centering around the main characters who are looking to navigate their way through the peak of adolescence. As it is a non traditional play, it doesn’t have a linear story-line. The play consists of a series of internal monologues disclosing each characters inner dilemma and is illustrated by songs using the lyrics of well-known nursery rhymes and sayings. As the characters choose their paths they are led through a journey of self-discovery and develop relationships and a sense of direction.
The tone of each monologue wrestles with adolescent/adult issues and is juxtaposed with familiar nursery rhyme sentiments put to more modern music.
