‘RAD! TV’ brings television to the stage with original work by kids

You don’t need to watch Saturday night TV for entertainment when you can come see “RAD! TV” performed by kids at El Paso KIDS-N-CO.

“RAD! TV” starts at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, at First Presbyterian Church, 1340 Murchison. Tickets are $7 adults and $5 for children, students, senior citizens and military.

Kids from KNC’s Production Camp 2 will perform 12 original, five-minute skits, featuring video “commercial breaks” between skits. The videos shown advertise fictional products such as Rotten Meat Town, Werewolf Repellent, Robot Servant and Rainbow Wizard, the TV Show. The skits and videos were written and developed by the campers, and the campers shot the videos as well. Larry Emerson, from Results Video, lent KNC his expertise and came and shot the camp’s movie preview of “Sweatshop, the Musical,” which parodies all musicals about orphaned children such as “Annie” and “Oliver,” with characters such as Ollie Krank, a.k.a. the Phantom, Natilda, Dannie and Peggy Peggington III. The camp is lead by Austin Savage, artistic director at Border Theater, with the assistance of Emily James, Emma Shackelford and Anthony Muñoz.
