We’re off to play at the Lab Cab Festival this weekend – and you should come too! This is the 5th year for Lab Cab – a free, two-day arts festival which takes place this Saturday and Sunday in every room, space, hallway and staircase (even washrooms) of the Factory Theatre. Local artists perform one-acts in theatre, dance, music, poetry, comedy, film and visual art. Founder and artistic director Aviva Armour-Ostroff tells us there will be oodles of kiddie-friendly entertainment – from shows to crafts. Most acts run a total of 15 – 20 minutes, perfect for the fidgety attention span.Wish you could pop into a performance you know your little one won’t enjoy? Nannies on Call is sponsoring the Kidzone at Lab Cab this year: we’re providing free (yes, free) childcare for families who would like to drop off children for a little break (and crafty fun) with Extraordinary Nannies Erin and Silvia from 12 PM – 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
And we’ll have another Extraordinary Nanny at Lab Cab – but she’ll be on stage! You’ll be able to find the amazing Nanny Hayley performing Alice and Lula which she co-wrote with Alison MacDonald and Thomas Gibson. Alice and Lula is a 15-minute whimsical tale about imaginary friends – and a world where unlikely friendships aren’t so unlikely. We can’t wait. (Showtimes listed below so you won’t miss out!)
