Very true-to-life

I think every woman in the audience can probably relate to the stories of the cliques. As a teacher, I see those same problems in my elementary school kids! If you have elementary aged girls, I think this is definitely a show you should see. I enjoyed the mix of "real-life" stories and the exaggeration in the story. Well done overall.

Kitties for the Cat

A talented cast, solid script, and lively staging make Maggie's Magical Cat one of the best shows I've seen so far this Fringe. The performance starts out strong with great energy from the whole ensemble and flows nicely from one scene to the next as we follow Maggie (and her cat) through the trials and tribulations of elementary school.

The show will probably bring back some painful childhood memories (it did for me), but the brutal honesty of the piece is offset nicely with sharp humor and genuine play. My only criticism is that the audience interaction seemed a little light, but the crowd was quiet that day, so that might have played into things.

Overall, Maggie's Magical Cat is a great show. The entire cast and company should be very proud.

This show held my attention, started off with catchy humor, and starred a few talented young actresses. I definitely related to some of the material for sure, and I really enjoyed your blocking/structure of the story within the story. I never quite 'got' which age group this show was for, though. It says 'kids', but at times I wasn't sure. The "true-life" actor storytelling was a interesting touch, slightly jarring, and a little after-school-special-y, but I appreciate the overall message for sure.
