Play With Words

“Reach for Potential”, “Jump through Hoops”, “Leap to Conclusions” These are phrases we’ve all heard but things which literally can’t be done in a meaningful way, until now…   Play With Words is an interactive impromptu theatrical piece for kids and families based on idioms. Join Amber Blais of Starry Night Productions and artist Shawn Bowman as we create tiny moments of performance art with you based on strange and silly phrases from the English language. We’ll have small props and a big dictionary on hand as we explore phrases of impossibilities. Time to throw caution to the wind and shake your tail feathers!
