Musical Playdate at Brentwood TC March 2-3

Brentwood Town Centre presents two of North America’s best loved children’s entertainment personalities for a weekend musical playdate March 2 and 3. ‘Franklin the Turtle’s Musical Playdate’ and ‘Richard Scarry’s Busytown – featuring Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm’ will highlight the event.

Along with  the live events, Brentwood Town Centre has developed a Creative Story Project that gives children the opportunity to practice their literacy skills. Children are invited to craft a short story or drawing that describes an imaginative adventure with their favorite Franklin or Busytown characters. Submissions will be featured on a story wall inside Brentwood Town Centre during the month of March.

To participate in the Creative Story Project, a registration form must be completed at the shopping centre’s Customer Service Centre. The first 300 to register will receive a VIP pass to meet Franklin & Friends or the Busytown characters after the musical playdate events.

Once registrants have dropped off their story/illustration submissions, they will receive a complimentary poster, a free ice cream coupon from Dairy Queen, and an entry for a chance to win a variety of prizes including a $30,000 RESP from Canadian Scholarship Trust. Deadline for submission is March 1, 2013.

Franklin & Friends perform on March 2 at 11 a.m. and on March 3 at 12 p.m. Lowly Worm and Huckle Cat perform March 2 at 1 p.m. and March 3 at 2 p.m.

Musical Playdate events are 30 minutes. Meet & Greets follow each show for those with VIP passes and are 45 minutes.
