A Few of Penny’s Favorite Things: BE MORE CHILL

by Penny Belle Carter (*edited for clarity and grammar)

I got to go see Be More Chill at Lincoln Community Playhouse last night. It was a birthday treat because I turn nine today! I didn’t see any other kids there, but it was not too much for an almost-nine-year-old. There are some cuss words, but it wasn’t a big deal. It was a really good play. Here are some of my favorite things about it:

  • Favorite Actor: Dawson Price as Rich
    • He really fit his character, and I thought he was great.
  • Favorite Actress: Chloe Schwarting as Brooke
    • She did good with her character, and I really liked “Do You Wanna Ride?”
  • Favorite Songs: “Pitiful Children” and “Michael in the Bathroom”
    • “Pitiful Children” was really dramatic
    • “Michael in the Bathroom” was really emotional, and the singer (Austin Rousseau) was really good.
  • Favorite Funny Moment: “I Love Play Rehearsal”
    • When Christine (Claire Wilkinson) pretends to be a velociraptor, it was really funny. She was awesome!
  • Favorite Dancer: Salvador Diaz-Debose
    • He is an amazing dancer!
  • Honorable Mentions:
    • The background characters in “Halloween Party” were so funny and so good!
    • When The Squip gets pulled off at the end of the play, that was really good too.
