Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience (Montreal’s Corona Theatre) April 27-28, 2013
Calling all Harry Potter fans! Currently on tour through North America, Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience will be at the Corona Theatre this weekend only: Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 2:00pm and 8:00pm and Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 2:00pm and 8:00pm. Managing to squeeze the Harry Potter series (7 books) into an unbelievable 70 minutes, the duo (Gay and Delme) has been receiving great reviews and most of their showings are sold out. If you have any Harry Potter fans in the house, this presentation is great for kids 6+.

Directed by Alain Goulem, this futuristic play is suitable for audiences aged 4 and up. It has been showing since April 12 but it’s ending this weekend with April 21st being its final day. The production has received great reviews and I’ve heard that it really appeals to all age groups. The subject of language (French and English) is an apt one and the play’s simple but important message (mutual communication and understanding) is subtly suggestive.
Location: Centaur Theatre ~ 453 St Francois-Xavier
Montreal Gazette review: http://www.montrealgazette.com/entertainment/theatre/Theatre+review+Head+T%C3%AAte+fresh+ever/8241191/story.html
Many children go through a rock collection stage. For me, it came after the dinosaur obsession; maybe one led to the other. If you have a fan of rocks (and gems), minerals or fossils in your family, I highly recommend this annual show in Montreal (this will be their 28th season). Not only are the exhibitions pure eye-candy but the hobbyists clearly love their work and will eagerly explain and guide you through their collections. Most pieces are available for purchase as is the gorgeous jewelry and stunning artwork.

Location: Centre Pierre-Charbonneau. 300 rue Viau (metro Viau). Montreal, Quebec H1V 3J3
**Parking is $12. I would try to find parking around the center rather than in its designated parking lot**
I had the opportunity to see the Harlem Globetrotters many years ago as a youth and I remember the show being spectacular. If my toddler son was old enough to enjoy this show combining basketball and theatrics, we would be going tomorrow night. If they are as good as they were years ago, I highly recommend it to families with kids ages 6+. Also, their theme song is so catchy!
