JUNO Award-nominated children’s performers Splash ‘N Boots played to a full house Feb. 20. The second in the series of free shows for children and their families during the cultural centre’s fifth anniversary, tickets for Splash ‘N Boots went quickly, a considerable step up from the 80 tickets sold during their 2012 visit. However, people without tickets were still given seats as the centre filled the few empty seats with those who came hoping to get in.
Splash’N Boots appear on television screens daily across Canada on Treehouse TV’s The Big Yellow Boot, a show centred on the joy of music and dance. Over the past year, the group have recorded more than 100 episodes (two seasons), which air up to six times daily in 8.3 million homes across the country.
Songs From the Boot, their ninth studio album is up for Children’s Album of the Year, the group’s third JUNO nomination.
Nick Adams, the Splash in Splash ‘N Boots told Morinville News before the show that families could expect to sing and dance. True to his word, the aisles of the cultural centre were filled with parents dancing with their children.
Splash ‘N Boots will be followed by iLumiDance, another of the no charge shows being offered during the centre’s fifth year of operation. The show takes place Mar. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and is sponsored by The Morinville News. Tickets are available at the cultural centre box office.
