Jensens and the Bensen Invention Convention

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through May 8 2011

In this Corn Productions show, Richard Anderson and Erin Johnson's bubbly, delightful tale about a family of amateur scientists gets turned into an excuse to pass subpar sketch comedy off on kids. Under the spell of an evil former child actor, the family's son gets trapped inside a television. His efforts to channel-hop to safety lead to old-hat TV show parodies. It's not clear who this thing is aimed at. The sight gags and sugary music imply a very young target audience, but the staging and story require more sophisticated comprehension. --Dan Jakes

Price: $5-$10
