How many different sounds can one person make with their body? STOMP sets out to answer that question. Performed on a simple backdrop with dramatic lighting, STOMP is energetic, engaging and humorous. I wasn’t expecting to laugh so much! My head could not stop boppin’ to the rhythms coming off the stage. All I could think of was how much practice went down before we saw the cast in action. It’s one thing to memorize lines but to remember the various rhythms on percussion instruments and choreography on top of that, whew! I’m tired just reliving that! Did I mention there was no intermission? These talented young women and men played straight through. I also thought it was cool to see older and younger patrons in the audience. This is definitely the type of musical I would bring my son to when he gets a bit older. (He’s only 11 months old now.) After watching the show I now want to turn my everyday items into musical instruments.
Do yourself a solid and get to the Sacramento Community Center Theatre to see STOMP, February 1st through the 10th in Downtown Sacramento. Tickets are available here.
