Haven Magazine - - SCHOOL HOLS -

Kids take the lead role at HOTA, Home of the Arts these school hol­i­days, with a mini-fest of fun sched­uled from Sept 28 to Oct 1. “Kids Take Over” is the play­ful pro­gram planned for chil­dren and par­ents alike. HOTA CEO Criena Gehrke says the HOTA precinct will trans­form into the ul­ti­mate play­ground and a cen­tral hub of en­ter­tain­ment for four days dur­ing the school hol­i­days. “Our pro­gram is all about ex­press­ing a sense of kids be­ing in con­trol. Think fun, chaotic and messy ac­tiv­i­ties that ap­peal to the whole fam­ily and get your cre­ative senses buzzing,” she says. Here’s what you can ex­pect: HAIR­CUTS BY CHIL­DREN: A group of 20 kids un­der the age of 10 will be given a crash course in hair­dress­ing prior to tak­ing the reins of their very own sa­lon and of­fer­ing free hair­cuts on The Ter­race at HOTA! Are you brave enough?! CHIL­DREN ARE STINKY: Pre­sented by Cir­cus Trick Tease and fea­tur­ing a tal­ented ac­ro­batic duo on a mis­sion to prove that kids stink, this is a wild, laugh-out-loud show with ri­otous dare devil stunts and in­cred­i­ble cir­cus skills all set to a 90s sound­track. KIDS’ COM­EDY HOUR: En­joy a crack­ing line-up of com­edy tal­ent, mu­sic, ad­ven­ture and magic at HOTA’S Arts Theatre, the likes of Randy Felt­face, Madame Lark, Mickey D and Chores by Clus­ter Arts. BOXWARS: Art and de­struc­tion com­bine. Us­ing noth­ing but card­board to engi­neer a master­piece, chil­dren and adults can join in the fun with a se­ries of free work­shops to con­struct mega mys­te­ri­ous cre­ations and cos­tumes that cul­mi­nate in the bat­tle of bat­tles.


If you’ve got kids, the Gold Coast is where you want to be these spring school hol­i­days – if only for the free hair­cuts!
