    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Arts events for families are hard to find these days, but the Massey Theatre is managing to address the shortage in a single day. The historic theatre comes alive from morning to evening on Saturday (February 10), with the Massey Madness Family Arts Fest kicking off at 11 a.m. with a performance of Axis Theatre’s lively First Nations mask-and-music work Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish. At 2 p.m., Capricorn Theatre Productions presents the youth-oriented Confessions of a Grocery Store Clerk, followed at 7 p.m. by the acrobatics of The New Conformity by Cause & Effect Circus and the comedic magic tricks and juggling of Straight favourite Travis Bernhardt (shown here). There are reasonably priced day passes for adults and kids, plus all kinds of free arts activities going on in the lobby and the onsite Plaskett Gallery from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
