The Flin Flon Arts Council offered a theatre program for children 8 to 14 years old over the past three months. Organizer Susan Gunn says Monday night the children will demonstrate what they have learned with the Doctor Seuss story Fox in Socks. She explains it’s been a really neat group of kids they have, it was a smaller group this year but they’re all very enthusiastic so they’re very excited to present this. She adds everybody has worked very hard on this not just on the stage but the same things they touch upon in all their classes so the kids have been showcasing the things they have learned about costuming, prop and set building and everybody has taken a turn at directing, mime and impromptu and the kids always seem to love absurdism so that’s kind of where the Dr. Seuss came out of.
Gunn says the children have invited friends and members of the family to attend the performance Monday at 7:30 in the Hapnot Collegiate Theatre. She notes the program will run again next year through the Arts Council and with some financial support they have received from the Rotary Club.
