Holiday activities at Horsham Town Hall
Horsham Town Hall will present family attractions for Wimmera people planning to stay at home for winter school holidays.
Activities encourage children to do everything from building a fort or baking a cake to creating something magical.
A key holiday highlight at the town hall is a show for ‘cubby creators’ and ‘den dwellers’.
Asking for Trouble arts company will present FORT, a circus and physical theatre production that delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.
The basis of the show, at 10.30am and 2.30pm on July 4, is about two strange characters that appear hunting for adventure.
In a series of vignettes, a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents – places to explore. Images appear and disappear.
Promoters describe FORT as ‘full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics and poetic visual imagery that celebrates the kind of kid genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars’.
Asking for Trouble’s previous shows Bubblewrap and Boxes and KAPOW! both won best family show awards at Melbourne Fringe festival and have toured to critical acclaim.
Tickets to FORT are $20 or $15 concession and family tickets for two adults and two children are $60.
FORT is part of the Horsham Town Hall Winter School Holiday Program that incorporates Horsham Regional Art Gallery.
Gallery director Adam Harding is encouraging children aged five to 12 to let their imaginations run wild with creative and entertaining activities for the winter holidays.
“Let them enjoy energetic and engaging performances, try their hand at cooking and explore a wide range of art classes all while keeping your lounge room glitter free,” he said.
Art activities cost $12 or $10 for members and concession. Activities have limited spaces and prices include all materials.
