With clapping, slinking, snapping, skipping, and tip-toeing, a cacophony of wordless, inventive and intriguing play unfolds through Hands and Feet.

Theatre Wrede+ invites young theatre-goers into the magical realm of sound, movement and imagination. This show is geared towards children aged 2 to 6 and their favourite grown-ups.

The Children’s Showcase recently featured Axis Theatre’s production of Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish, a story from the Kwantlen village of Squa’lets.

Tickets for Hands and Feet are $12 and are available in advance at Tumbleweed Gallery, Penticton Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in the Leir House or online at Eventbrite. Tickets also available at the door.
