Fun past times THE ES­SEN­TIALS

Fremantle Gazette - - OPINION - Picture: Jon Hew­son

CHIL­DREN in Perth will get a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence what life was like in the 1930s in the The Swash-line Se­cret, an in­ter­ac­tive 1930s per­for­mance at the WA Ship­wrecks Mu­seum dur­ing the win­ter school holidays.

Co­me­dian Mon­ica Main said the show was de­signed to give chil­dren an in­sight into life in and around Freo.

“I play Pip, an 11-year-old ram­bunc­tious girl who shares rip­ping yarns about school hol­i­day ad­ven­tures in Perth and Fremantle in the 1930s,” she said.

“The show will re­veal what it was like for kids nearly 100 years ago; a time of long hot sum­mers run­ning bare­foot in the neigh­bour­hood, honky nut wars and beach comb­ing for trea­sures. WHAT: The Swash-line Se­cret, an in­ter­ac­tive 1930s per­for­mance WHEN: Sun­day, July 1, to Fri­day, July 13, ex­clud­ing Satur­day, July 7, two ses­sions 10am and 11.30am WHERE: WA Ship­wrecks Mu­seum TICK­ETS: http://mu­seum.wa.­se­ums/ship­wrecks/ swash-line-se­cret

Fremantle mu­seum site man­ager Gill Har­ri­son said she hopes it would in­spire chil­dren to ex­plore the Swan River and wa­ters with their par­ents.

“We would love them to bring their grown-ups who will be able to tell their sto­ries, which in turn will cre­ate new mem­o­ries for all,” she said.­mu­ni­ d484053
