Dear Caitlyn, Tiana and Jayden, When you were young, you might not have had the best boyfriend, you might have been glad to give someone else a go at singing in the school concert, you might have wanted to be a magician, but look at you now! You create magic at every performance, you make people laugh after only seconds on stage, you have people moaning 'OHHH' one minute and then crying with laughter the next. You have people critiquing the show with comments like ' That was the best comedy I've seen since I don't know when' and I'm coming back and bringing my friends'. Give yourselves a scratch n smell sticker - your show was so much fun I couldn't believe it was over so soon.
Looking back can be painful. A teenage era marked by pimples, Clearasil, coat hanger tight jeans, Pokemon and hang-ups– it can also be hilarious as we found out at the nostalgia sketch comedy show Who We Were.
Three young comics (Caitlyn Staples, Tiana Hogben and Jayden Masciulli) have composed this unique show- a combination of sketch, storytelling and music to take you back to those innocent school days and all those oh so many those cringe-worthy snippets in life.
Remember the games we played, the television we watched, the music we listened to, and agonising over the clothes we wore. Would we still thirst after Pikachu, spend our last cents on Wizz Fizz and become paralysed over the thought of a first date? If only we could turn back the clock?!
This is a feel-good relatable show that puts a spotlight on the 90's/00's. First staged as part of Melbourne Fringe 2016, Who We Were is playing at the Improv Conspiracy Theatre for 4 shows only every night throughout February! It's only $10. On the way out, we heard everyone praising the show and people in the car park elevator raving about it.
