Our character, Dr. Professor, is on a quest for a conclusion to the question, “Is it OK to make mistakes?” When taking their research to the young experts of the classroom, more than a few foibles cause the doctor to continuously fail. With help from the students, together they uncover how mistakes can help us learn and make new discoveries. Award-winning inter-arts maestro Candice Roberts performs this fun and clever story about growth mindset and the creative process through a seamless weaving of shadow puppetry, original music, tap dance and physical comedy in this fun and interactive performance.
Performance is at 7:00 pm and runs for one hour.

Grant funding for this event has been provided by BC Arts Council Arts Impact.
