In the program, the original production 45, de la Taupinière, created in partnership with the Professional Theater School of Lionel-Groulx College is of particular interest. Combining theatrical acting and puppetry, this show, directed by Isabelle Payant, is the chance to discover a new generation of talented performers. Sometimes touching, sometimes funny, this piece plunges us into an encounter between two worlds that will certainly delight young and old alike. The show will be presented free of charge at the Blainville community center (1000, chemin du Plan-Bouchard) on May 5, at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The Festival Petits bonheurs will also welcome the French troupe Le Mouton Carré, as they present their show Ficelle. Intended for children aged three and over, this piece will rock the young Blainvillois with the gentle words and music of its character through the different stages of his life. A world where kids play at daring, falling to get up better and launching into the unknown is to be discovered. The free performance will take place on May 3, at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., at the Blainville Community Center.

Many activities offered

The program also offers many participatory workshops and other artistic performances that will amuse children. They will be able to touch on several disciplines including the plastic arts, the circus, storytelling and theatre.

One of the primary benefits of these workshops and performances is that they offer children the opportunity to interact with and learn from experienced artists and performers. Through these participatory workshops and artistic performances, children can develop a range of skills, including creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving. They can also gain a deeper appreciation for the arts and the value of creative expression.
