Looking for fun, free things to do with kids in the Lower Mainland? ArtStarts is pleased to offer free arts-based events for kids and families each month—in both Vancouver and New Westminster. Join some of the best artists working with young people for performances and workshops that explore a wide range of cultures and artistic disciplines.
This month your family can enjoy a free puppet show with Kellie Haines!
This hilarious show blends musical numbers with fast paced ventriloquism comedy bits with Magrau the bird and Kamilla the frog.
After a brief musical warm-up with Kellie, the audience meets Magrau the bird, who is a little hungry and full of surprises. He and Kellie take a series of comic detours – like a mangled rendition of the Itsy- Bitsy Spider song to a cupcake caper. Next we meet Kamilla the frog, a precocious four year-old frog with red hair. When it becomes clear that Kamilla forgot to round up other frogs for her big production number, Kellie recruits audience members who save the show. This heartwarming and funny show concludes with a final song about believing in yourself called Never Give Up.
