The folks over at Fun House Theatre and Film can do no wrong. They've earned critical acclaim and numerous awards for new perspectives on works by everyone from Edward Albee to David Mamet. What's different about them? They only cast kids. This weekend, masterminds (at least according to us) Jeff Swearingen and Bren Rapp throw teenagers into the tangled web of sexual manipulation in Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things. For this mature story, they've brought in Brad Baker, the chair of Collin College's theater department, to direct the young cast. In the hands of anyone else, this might be a disaster, but with the young actors at Fun House, it's bound to be worth the $10 ticket. Performances start Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and run through Sunday.
