Ovations for Young People
Ovations for young people presents affordably priced—and family friendly—matinee shows by nationally and internationally recognized performing artists.
Saturday, November 22, 11 a.m.
A bubble volcano. Bubble roller coaster. A kid in a bubble? Jeff Boyer takes bubbles to the max in this one-man bubble extravaganza. It's the craziest, most creative bubble show around. Jeff juggles bubbles, sculpts and builds with bubbles, makes fog-filled bubbles and more. Mixing comedy, music and interactive bubble-magic, Jeff shows the science involved in bubbles-why they are multi-colored and what each color says about that part of the bubble. What makes up a bubble? Why are they shaped the way they are? What holds them together? It's a whole lot of Bubble Trouble!
Scrap Arts Music
Saturday, March 21, 11 a.m.
Take some old bike parts, shiny construction salvage, PVC pipes, and other recycled odds and ends. Add five hyperactive hipsters and a dozen drumsticks, and the result is a dizzying barrage of beats. Vancouver-based ensemble Scrap Arts Music bounces around on stage with a combination of gymnastic agility and percussive drive. They alternate between hitting, moving and bowing their instruments, and the choreography is intricate and eye-catching. Warning: your child may want to take up drums!
