Some travellers may think of opera performances and elegant displays of theatrical talent when they imagine attending a show while on holiday. However, if guests journeying to Ontario and Quebec are making their trips with children, there are plenty of programs throughout the province that are kid-friendly and fun for adults too. Plays for little ones range from major musicals to smaller comedies appropriate for young audiences. Regardless of what performance is chosen, seeing a play in a new city can be a fun and memorable activity for the whole family while they are enjoying their adventure in Canada.
Those who can't get enough of Halloween have the chance to experience creepy things through November 27th at Toronto's Centre for the Arts. The venue's website says that talented actors and actresses will sing and dance during a fresh musical adaptation of The Addams Family. The story tells of a quirky family that lives in a somewhat haunted house along with a massive cast of strange housekeepers and other memorable characters. Officials recommend this show for children aged 10 and up.
Travellers who enjoy dancing and acrobatics should not miss the Cirque de Soleil show coming to the Centre Bell in Montreal from December 18th through the 20th. These popular spectacles express emotion through choreographed dancing and incredible tumbling and trapeze work. The one coming to Montreal is known as Dralion and is suitable for all ages. Many of the acts in this performance are inspired by ancient Chinese acrobatics and traditional African fashion, design and movement. Families who love big productions with lots of dazzling special effects and amazing displays of entertainment should not miss this show if in Montreal this winter.
For a show catering to a younger crowd, travellers visiting Ottawa can purchase tickets for the fun and interactive puppet show hosted by the Rag and Bone Puppet Theatre. Called Zoom at Sea, this performance will grace the stage on November 13th and 27th and is open to families of all ages. The show tells a tale about Zoom the cat and his adventures commandeering a ship across the ocean. This spectacular display of puppetry is based on the children's book by Tim Wynne-Jones.
Sharing activities together on holiday is often the highlight of a trip. Travellers can catch a play and have a blast at one of these thrilling performances this fall and winter.
