EMCS theatre to host upcoming kids show

The Kerplunks are multi-award winning children’s entertainers bringing high-energy, colourful performances to the stage.

In honour of Family Literacy Week (the last week in January), the Edward Milne Community Theatre will be hosting the Kerplunks, a children’s musical performance.

The Kerplunks are multi-award winning children’s entertainers bringing high-energy, colourful performances to the stage.

No doubt, their catchy tunes are guaranteed to get kids engaged, singing along and joining in on the action.

The band is made up of four players: Dinah D (Big D) on the upright bass, Tina Jones on the trumpet, trombone, clarinet, baritone and vocals, Phil Wipper on the drums and Aaron Cadwaladr on the acoustic guitar, as well as vocals and occasional funny faces.

The event will be free as it is being paid for with funds from Decoda Literacy Solutions, a province-wide literacy organization.

The Sooke Region Literacy Project will be working with the Sooke Branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library and Sooke Rotary Volunteers to make this event happen as well.

The show will take place on Jan. 31 at 2 p.m.
