#PowerUpTheWinter this Family Day Weekend! 

With January coming to a close, it’s hard to believe Family Day 2020 is just around the corner! This year, the Living Arts Centre has TWO days of fun for the whole family to enjoy together.

On Sunday, February 16, 2020…

Don’t miss the epic new musical by TheaterWorksUSA, Dog Man: The Musical, based on the worldwide bestselling children’s series by Dav Pilkey! Follow the antics of fifth graders George and Harold, who decide to create a musical based on their favourite character: Dog Man! Can he still be a good boy while trying to save the city from a cyborg fish and the world’s most evil cat? You’ll have to get tickets to find out! Make sure you arrive early for pre-show arts and crafts!

Stay and play on Monday, February 17, 2020, from 12:00 – 4:00 PM!

The Centre will be buzzing with FREE, family-friendly programming! Here are just a few of the highlights:

Special Headliners: GFORCE! – 12:30 PM in Hammerson Hall

A young and spirited girl group made up of five best friends from the Greater Toronto Area! Members Ava Ro, Holly Gorski, Michela Luci, Sarah De Carvalho and Sienna Pesino experiment with a unique fusion of rap, pop melodies and gang vocals!

Get Creative!

LAC crafts are always a huge hit! Try your hand at creating personalized superhero cuffs, buttons, slinky super pets, and more at our craft tables throughout the day!

You can also take a stroll through the LAC’s newest gallery exhibition, Tiny Mighty Heroes! Featuring works in photography, painting, and sculpture, this exhibit explores how children perceive heroes, and how this relationship develops through imagination and play!

Frog In Hand presents “The Trouble with Capes” – 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM

 

A performance by Frog In Hand is one you never forget! Frog In Hand uncovers, makes, and shares stories through dance. They’re performing a brand new interactive piece that will be fun, whimsical, and daring (in true Frog In Hand style)!

Roasted Marshmallows? Yum!

Our friends from the 1st Meadowvale West Scout Group will be onsite braving the cold with fire-building demonstrations and delicious marshmallows throughout the day!

There is PLENTY more to explore and see this Family Day! Grab your superhero capes, masks, and sidekicks, and come on over to POWER UP THE WINTER! Click here for more details.
