Raised On TV theatre celebrates Canadian television shows

Comedies, dramas, cartoons—most of us, we can say, were raised on television of some sort. This magic of “the boob tube” combines with theatre once again in the form of Raised on TV, a series of live-action reenactments playing on The Guild stage in February.

RoTV was created in 2017 by Islanders Rod Weatherbie and Grace Kimpinski. Whereas its first two “seasons” brought shows from both the U.S. and Canada to life, its third installment, Raised on TV: We Are Canadian, focuses solely on Canadian content and ranges from the cuteness of Caillou to the spiciness of The Sunday Night Sex Show.

While RoTV tends to lean toward the funnier side of Canadian programming, the humor doesn’t just come from the TV episodes themselves. The overall rule is to stick to any show’s dialogue as originally scripted—but this year’s four directors are free to interpret their material in any way that inspires them, creating not only unexpected, laugh-out-loud moments, but a unique night of entertainment with a completely Canadian twist.

Raised on TV: We Are Canadian runs February 15 and 16 at 8 pm at The Guild, Charlottetown, with doors opening at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available online, by phone at 902-620-3333, or at the door the night of the shows.
