Let's see the play "Paper Song"

Ever see a play that incorporates origami? Here's one!

If you know me at all, you won't be surprised to know that it's a matter of time before I'll want to see a show intended for children. Now, I know we're all really mature here at this group, but this play includes origami, and that's just cool overall, so here's a meetup for us. I hope you can join me!

And if anyone has children or grandchildren that they would like to bring, this show is suitable for children and families.

The link with the description is below:

Meet at 6:30pm for the 7pm showing. Since the play is only an hour long, we will certainly have time to go for coffee or food afterwards on nearby Whyte Avenue!!

    Lovely play. I liked the sets and how the performers interacted with the oragami elements.

      Ordered my ticket today. I'm excited to see this show! :) Origami in a play? Yes, please!

      Please come and say hello to us during the reception, Gail. We're the crowd that carries colourful artificial flowers with us for easy identification. And there will be Steve in his paper hat, too!

    Hi, I'm new to the group and look forward to meeting everyone. Just wondering if there is a certain place to meet up?

    January 24, 2013

    • Victoria B.

      We usually meet in the lobby near the main Box Office. Maria will be carrying a bunch of fabric flowers with dots on them! Looking forward to meeting you. This a fun and moderately crazy group :)

      January 24, 2013

    • Maria

      Exactly. Meet around 6:30 pm. I'll be sending out an e-mail to all attendees later today to give the specifics, along with my phone number, in case you need to call. Glad you're joining us, Joan!

    What's your fancy? If you find a better or simpler pattern, please post. I'm going to experiment with paper sizes and will let ya know le results tamorra. This is gonna be a fun show!!!!

      Creating origami relies on several skills that sadly, I don't possess: the ability to follow instructions; fine-motor control and manual dexterity; the ability to work slowly and carefully; and an ability to create anything visually artistic. I do look forward to seeing what the rest of you create, if you do so! :)

      I agree that this will be a fun show. I really want to see how it incorporates origami into a play!

    I will be back to Edmonton 6pm Friday. I'll try to make it. Will be a loss if I can't.

      So, are we sporting paper hats for Friday?! My ticket's going to be waiting at the Box Office. Just need to know if I should prep head gear!

      January 21, 2013

    • Maria

      Paper hats? Nope. I'm more of a tin-foil hat myself.
