Family fun at the D.B. Clarke

Geordie Productions, the successful youth theatre company, is launching a family subscriptions se- ries of three plays in Concordia's D.B. Clarke Theatre.

The first production, scheduled for January 21 to 30, is called For Art's Sake. Art, in this case, is Art McArthur, who confronts self-doubt and realizes his creativity through slide projections, puppetry and music. The play, written by Colin Heath and directed by Elsa Bolam, is intended for children aged five to 12.

The subsequent productions in the series are The Paperbag Princess, based on a story by Robert Munsch (June 2 to 11), and The Wind in the Willows, the British classic (November 2000).

For subscriptions and more information, call the Geordie Productions box office at 845-1955.
