The stage is set for Saturday morning children’s theatre
Saturday mornings are about to be packed with culture and live performances, thanks to a new series of shows being introduced at the Centaur Theatre.
Beginning this month, the theatre will host the TD Saturday Morning Children’s Series, which will feature family-friendly entertainment on select Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.
On Oct. 21, kids aged 5 and up are invited to watch professional storyteller TUUP in See the Jaguar: Stories of the Rainforest. The Montreal Intercultural Storytelling Festival will host this show, which includes Guyanese storytelling, music and artwork. TUUP will be on hand to tell the tale of the jaguar and the snake king.
On Nov. 4, all ages are welcome to watch the Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre’s performance of The Doll’s House. Kids will watch as Tottie, a young wooden doll who lives with her family in a shoebox, deals with a new arrival who wreaks havoc on her home.
On Nov. 18, puppeteer and art educator Mister Jesse will host Puppet Karaoke (pictured above) alongside some of his furry friends. Kids aged 9 and up are invited to select their favourite songs and participate in sing-and-dance-along sessions.
On Dec. 2, animator Lady Lost will enlist the help of 2- to 8-year-olds to save the holiday season during the Enchanted Miss Lost! show. After a grumpy spirit steals a bunch of important objects, the holidays are at risk of being abolished forever. Lady Lost will sing nursery rhymes and play association games to retrieve the items.
Tickets cost $8 for children and $10 for adults. Seating is limited so be sure to buy in advance. To purchase tickets, call 514-288-3161.
