Free Shows at Ware Center for Sweet Pea Project Families!

Because we've been through a lot as a family, and we all deserve a little fun and laughter.  A little special treatment.

The Ware Center in downtown Lancaster is opening its doors to us this weekend.  For free.  All you have to do is email Stephanie@sweetpeaproject.org no later than Feb 21 and let me know how many people will be attending with you.  Here are the details, as emailed to me by the Winter &Ware Centers' lovely family arts collaborator, Barry Kornhauser.

We have TWO great shows coming up this weekend at the Ware Center, both totally appropriate for children and adults - and we are happy to offer Sweet Pea Project community families FREE tickets to each!!!

Both of these shows are being performed by Dan Kamin.  He's the guy who taught Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp their physical comedy chops (for the movies CHAPLIN and BENNY & JOON).  More recently he trained the actor starring in the Broadway show CHAPLIN.   That's probably why Robert Downey Jr. called Dan America's "foremost authority" on Charlie Chaplin.  He's also a wonderfully funny performer himself as you will see if you come to these shows.

On Friday evening, Feb. 22, at 7:30, Dan is presenting FUNNY BONES: THE COMEDY OF CHARLIE CHAPLIN.  This show includes live silent comedy routines, audience participation, and a silent film clip of a Charlie Chaplin with live musical accompaniment.  Lots of laughs and even a little bit of learning.

On Saturday morning, Feb. 23 at 11:00, Dan is presenting COMEDY IN MOTION, a completely delightful show that's been called "a breathtaking display of theatricality that's sharp, funny, and highly inventive."  One hour before the show, we'll have free fun activities in the lobby for all kids, and right after the show, he'll offer a comedy workshop for kids.   We'll also provide a home activity guide, a free snack, and a toy surprise to every kids that comes.

And, again, for you, this is all FREE!!!   All you have to do is show up.  Just email first to let me know how many of you might be coming.  That way we can be better prepared.  Hope you'll take advantage of this offer.  It's good wholesome fun for all ages - from 5 to 95.   Please join us.
