Winterruption 2017: Fred Penner at Persephone Theatre
January 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As the wrap-up to this year’s WINTERRUPTION, we’re excited to bring back beloved children’s entertainer Fred Penner! He’ll be entertaining the whole family with songs from his many decades of work and as an added bonus, Calories will be hosting a brunch of locally sourced, beatifully made food an hour before the performance. Call the Broadway Theatre box office to book your spot for the brunch.
At a recent keynote address to an early childhood education conference, acclaimed family entertainer, singer/songwriter, composer, actor, writer, author, TV host and keynote speaker Fred Penner delivered a simple, yet powerful message. “Never underestimate your ability to make a difference in the life of a child.”
A gentle giant with kind eyes and an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself, this musical master brings 25 years of commitment, consistency and depth to a career that skillfully blends the many genres of performing and communication.
More than the music, the two-time Juno winner and eight-time nominee’s body of work is about energy and emotional connection. Always building on a common theme rooted in integrity and a “belief in what I can do” he has created a lasting impact that crosses the generations and continues to grow.
NOTE: This is a matinee performance (1pm), but our friends at Calories are providing a pre-show brunch for those who add this on to their ticket at time of purchase. Enjoy excellent local fare in the Persephone lobby before the show! Brunch runs 11:30am-12:30pm. Limited tickets available. Contact the Broadway Theatre box office for Brunch tickets!
