Fun past times THE ESSENTIALS
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. The Swash-line Secret, an interactive 1930s performance Sunday, July 1, to Friday, July 13, excluding Saturday, July 7, two sessions 10am and 11.30am WA Shipwrecks Museum http://museum.wa. gov.au/museums/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.
