It's a double bill that might not appeal to the over-six set, but toddlers and young children are sure to be delighted by the shows taking place at Brentwood Town Centre next month.
The two shows - Franklin the Turtle's Musical Playdate and Richard Scarry's Busytown - featuring Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm - take place on March 2 and 3.
The first Franklin show is at 11 a.m. on March 2, and the Busytown show is at 1 p.m.
On March 3, the Franklin show is at noon and the Busytown show is at 2 p.m.
Each of the shows is 30 minutes. The town centre has also developed a creative story project in association with the shows, according to a press release from Shape Properties, Brentwood's management company.
For the project, children can write a short story or draw a picture that describes an adventure with their favourite Franklin or Busytown characters.
The submissions will be featured on a story wall in the town centre for the month of March.
Parents whose children wish to participate must fill out a registration form in advance at the shopping centre's customer service centre. The first 300 children to register will receive a VIP pass to meet Franklin and his friends or the Busytown characters after the musical playdate show.
Children who participate in the creative story project will receive a complimentary poster, a coupon for free ice cream at Dairy Queen and an entry form for a variety of prizes, including a $30,000 registered educational savings plan from Canadian Scholarship Trust, according to the release.
The deadline for submissions is March 1. For more information on these events and more, go to www.brentwoodtown centre.com.
