January 30 is a PD Day for many kids in the Ottawa area. If you are home with them that day, you might be looking for something to do to keep them busy.
The Nepean Creative Arts Centre has a suggestion – head to the theatre for a Rag and Bone Puppet Theatre Performance! We’ve been to these performances before and always enjoy ourselves!
Beginning at 1:30 pm, the show, The Flying Canoe, is a family friendly performance that has magical creatures that will delight kids aged 4-11.
A talking cat…the devil at a dance …a bear in a canoe …magical creatures …A fantastic and fun introduction to the culture, music and language* of the first Francophones in Canada-the voyageurs, the loggers, the trappers and farm families-whose humour, imagination and courage helped found our very own community. Featuring puppets, early film footage, traditional songs & music. And lots of curriculum connections! The story of the Flying Canoe, La Chasse-Galerie, was first published in Canada in 1900 by Honoré Beaugrand. This well-known French Canadian tale is the centrepiece of our play about the myths, legends, and daily life in early French Canada.
*mostly in English, with a soupçon of French.
