The upcoming Teck Children’s Series announced

The Teck Children’s Series is part of the newest partnership and initiative between the RDKB and the TDAC.

The Trail and District Arts Council (TDAC) is pleased to announce the latest additions to their programming year: The Teck Children’s Series at The Charles Bailey Theatre.

Parents and grandparents who have been waiting for performing arts experiences they can share with their younger family members need wait no longer. The new children’s series of four matinees offers a wide range of professional programming designed specifically for kids aged 4-12 that will keep them focused, learning and excited, while the young at heart will also be entertained.

Beginning October  19 at 2 p.m. SAM2 will create music using instruments crafted from salvaged and recycled materials such as exhaust hoses, artillery shells and recycled metals. SAM2 introduces kids to green ingenuity, creativity and excellence. They will be performing excerpts from their hit adult show and embellishing them with an educational “scrap” instrument overview and ever-popular audience participation.

On November 9 audiences of all ages become the stars in fiddler-clown-aviator Major Conrad Flapps’ delightful blend of physical/acrobatic and musical comedy. The world’s only “human airplane” enlists audience members as his flying crew on stage and creates musical parodies with hilarious results.

Then, on February 8 join The Little Prince on a 45 minute spectacular adventure as he celebrates open-mindedness, open-heartedness and the beauty of imagination. With puppets, masks, original music and a little theatre magic, the storytelling experts of Monster Theatre will capture your hearts and your funny bones as they bring Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s cherished novella to life before your eyes.

And lastly, Cadence a cappella group take a trip through time as they cover over 100 years of vocal music in 50 minutes on May 2. The Juno-nominated quartet will cover such material as Gregorian chant, classical, choral, jazz, doo-wop, rock, blues and more, incorporating mind-blowing instrumental imitations, high-energy antics and audience participation.

The Teck Children’s Series is part of the newest partnership and initiative between the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and the TDAC with the collective goal of increasing theatre participation. Programming and Marketing director Nadine Tremblay explains ,“Children’s programming was identified as a priority in the region and this series is just one way of providing opportunities to live a more cultural life and cultivating passion for the arts in our young people. I don’t take this pursuit lightly. Performing arts is a time-honoured way of learning, knowing and expressing ourselves that all children should experience. I can’t wait for audiences around here to experience these amazing acts coming to us from as far away as Toronto.”

Tickets are $70 for the series of four shows or $20 for each individual show.
