Looking for something fun, kid-friendly and special to do with your young ones to celebrate Halloween? Get tickets for Yaki’s Halloween Spooktacular Concert. It’s taking place at Centrepointe Theatres October 28 at 1 p.m.
Yaki (real name Richard Bourbeau) is known to school children throughout the Ottawa area. For the past 10 years he has performed in concerts around the region and beyond.
“I have now performed at 186 different schools in Eastern Ontario and Montreal, doing around 200 shows a year, mostly for kindergartens, but also for primary age kids and preschool and daycare programs,” Yaki says. “Every day is filled with silly, giggly musical fun! Many days are simply magic.”
Silly, Giggly Musical Fun
Manotick Public School agrees: “Your music is very clever. You are a musical Robert Munch…”
Certainly, the songs will stick in your head and have you jigging for the rest of the day. “I wrote most of these songs for my kids when they were little. Usually getting inspired by the everyday things they would do or say,” he adds. The songs include The Dinosaur Song (T-Rex), Toot-Toot, My Dog, Beware of the Halloween Ghost, The Chicken Song, and Little Choo Choo Train. “Uniquely unique children’s music, that is what I do,” he explains.
Kids love it. As a family-friendly, informal performance, Yaki’s concert offers a great opportunity to introduce your kids to the theatre. It’s taking place in the Centrepointe Studio, an intimate venue where young ones will feel at ease. Better yet, they won’t be expected to sit still. In fact, they’re encouraged to dance away. Grownups are too.
Costumes are also encouraged. Tickets on sale now. For more information or for tickets visit: www.centrepointetheatre.com or call the box office at 613‐580‐2700.
