Kids had a riot at our annual family show and pajama party on Friday, January 17! It was snowy outside, but inside the SRSS Theatre heartwarming tales by Robert Munsch were being told. First, kids enjoyed story book readings from some of our wonderful volunteers, then it was time for the main attraction - Prairie Theatre Exchange. Fits and giggles abounded as the professional theatre company from Winnipeg acted out five Robert Munsch stories. At first, the actors pretended they were lost... and as if they thought that the crowd was just a bunch of lost people like them! Robert Munsch classics were woven in and out of the story line as the actors decided to "practice" each story... eventually realizing that they had made it to Steinbach and they weren't lost!

Kids became a part of the stories, starring as pigs in "Pigs!" and Qallupilluit in "A Promise is a Promise," and even Lauretta's brother in "Zoom!"

After the show, the audience got to ask the actors from Prairie Theatre Exchange questions about acting and about the play. Then everybody enjoyed milk and cookies together!

This year's show was called "Portage & Munsch: 50 Below" and was one of the best yet! Thanks to our show sponsors Kelvin, Kim and Malachi Goertzen.

Here's the actors from this year\'s Robert Munsch family show: Kelci Stephenson, Murray Farnell and Aaron Pridham
