It's Time to Get Things Started....'s time to see the show!

How many times as children did you dance through the theme song for The Muppet Show just waiting for the Swedish Chef to throw some meatballs or for Pigs in Space to get lost in planetary orbit once again? Anyone remember "The Muppets Take Manhatten"? Needless to say, the classic songs and jokes from Jim Henson's manic puppet show will live on forever in the minds of a generation.

This Saturday, your kids can experience thier own muppet-mania at Kimbourne Park United Church's Muppetravaganza called "The Muppet Show Show" (catchy title, eh?). Seven jazz-influenced musicians will be performing classic music and vintage favourites from “The Muppet Show” and “Sesame Street”.

Tickets are a steal at only $10 for adults and kids are FREE! The show is from 3pm - 4pm, Saturday June 6th. You can buy tickets at the door, in advance at the church office or online here.

The show is raising money for a really good cause. All the proceeds will go to the “Kits for Kids” project that provides a backpack full of clothing for children aged 0 to 5 going into emergency foster care. The saddest thing is that these children often arrive with nothing, and so this gives them a new set of clothing, pyjamas, a toy and/or a book in a backpack that they can take with them when they move on. A very worthy cause in my mind!

Enjoy the show!

  1. This looks like such a fun event. We'll have to see if we're free Saturday afternoon as I'd love to take Zoe.
