Saturday, March 15, at 2 p.m.Combining puppetry, comedy, and music into a complete entertainment package, Norman Foote summons laughter from audience members of all ages. Bringing to the stage a mix of original, Juno Award-winning children’s songs and old favourites with hilarious new interpretations, both kids and adults alike will appreciate his lighthearted antics. The winner of four Parents Choice Awards, Norman has written and recorded songs for Disney Records, Shari Lewis and, most recently, for the live musical versions of Max & Ruby and Toopy & Binoo. Get ready to shake a leg, snap your fingers, and clap your hands because Norman gets kids a-movin’ and a-groovin’!
What makes Norman so great is his ability to find subject matter that challenges and engages his audience. He puts his theatrical and comedic talents to use as he weaves stories and paints musical imagery that audiences respond to immediately. His hilarious adaptation of nursery rhymes sung by rock stars is a routine that defines his talent for creating material that can bridge the generation gap. He calls this a “twist on tradition". His claim to fame are his props with an attitude. Simple by nature, fascinating by delivery. These characters enter the stage as inanimate objects and with the element of surprise and improvisation come to life, never failing to bring the house down with laughter and applause.
Also joining Norman on-stage on March 15 will be 48 members of the Brookwood School Choir. These talented young singers are looking forward to performing for their friends, families, and community.
