Spare Parts Puppet Theatre presents its  production of Moominpappa at Sea, an adaptation of celebrated Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson’s book, at its Fremantle Short Street theatre at Princess May Park from January 14 for the 2019 summer holidays.

Moominpappa at Sea follows a family of Moomin trolls who embark on a great adventure to find a new home on a rocky, windswept island far out to sea. As the Moomins explore the mysterious surroundings of their new island home, we get a unique opportunity to see the world through their eyes, and this adventure story of a family ‘at sea’ becomes a journey of self-discovery for us all.

This timeless and imaginative story is brought to life by the director and solo performer, Michael Barlow who draws you into the lives of these enchanting creatures as they face challenges with courage, humour and optimism.

Moominpappa at Sea is the eighth novel in the legendary Moomin series. Jansson’s witty and whimsical Moomin characters have captured the imaginations of millions around the world, inspiring movies, TV shows and theme parks, and even the naming of the asteroid, Moomintroll in 1995.

The season begins on January 14 and runs until February 2, with two shows daily at 10am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday (no shows Sundays or Public Holidays).

There are also three special evening performances on January 18 and 25, and February 1 at 6.30pm. At 45 minutes and suitable for ages five and above, Moominpappa at Sea is a charming and timeless show that will delight and inspire all ages to be more curious about the world around us.

HAVE FREO FUN ON NEW YEAR’S EVE!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, hospitality, music, Uncategorized by freoview on December 31, 2018

 

 

It is the last day of the year, a day where we contemplate the beauty and madness, the sins and sorrows, the love and delights of the year we had, and where we promise ourselves to do much better in the new year, and definitely get much better governments-again.

For some it will be important to party until the early hours of the first day of the new year, while others, like I, will hit the bed much earlier.

There are parties all over Freo, from the Gatsby one up on the roof terrace of the National Hotel to the family friendly early party at Clancy’s, and the old school Freo house party at The Local.

The kids-friendly part at Clancy’s starts at 4pm with a fancy dress competition for children, a bouncing castle, an obstacle course, face painting, and music by the Justin Walsh Folk Machine from 7pm.

There will be roaming entertainment from 8pm and an early countdown into the New Year at 9pm. Entry is free!

Whatever you do make sure not to drink and drive or make a nuisance of yourself to your neighbours or the community. It might be the last day of the year, but it is not the end of the world, so show respect and tolerance.

STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!

The 16 days VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN campaign held a breakfast on the lawn of the WA Shipwrecks Museum in Fremantle this morning.

It is very disturbing to hear that domestic violence in Australia has been increasing over the last years, and that is not acceptable!

Early notice that it is White Ribbon Day on Friday and that there will be a floral installation in Fremantle’s Henderson Street between the Sail&Anchor and Fremantle Markets from 9am to 1pm.

Domestic violence, mainly against women, is an abhorrent crime that has been increasing in Australia, and that needs to be stopped!

I know there will be heaps of kids parents-sitting this weekend(again), so take the oldies to the Fremantle Arts Centre for the ANIMAZE-Amazing Animals for Kids (and (grand)parents).

There is so much colour and fun and excitement, and among all of that is the oasis of tranquility artist Ross Potter quietly pencil drawing a huge work of Tricia the Perth Zoo elephant.

And tomorrow you can combine a visit to Animaze with the courtyard music from 2-4pm.
