Raised on TV is what happens when television and theatre collide.
This multimedia theatrical event explores how television has changed and how television has changed us.
Through sketches and homage led by Island directors (including Samantha Bruce, Cameron Bennett-MacDonald, Rob MacDonald, Marieve McGregor, Greg Stapleton, Dave Stewart, and Rod Weatherbie), retro commercial breaks, and theme songs, Raised on TV wants to reveal the medium of television and everything it represents: the good, the bad, the tawdry, the commercial, the uplifting.
By show’s end, the audience will have laughed so hard their bellies hurt and they will leave the theatre feeling a giddy nostalgia…reflecting on the serious, silly, and absurd moments on television that influenced who we are today.
Raised on TV is at The Guild February 24 and 25 at 8 PM.
