Kid's Kapers Musical
Not Your Average Musical
During the month of May there will be three performances of the musical Not Your Average Joe: The Story of Joseph with a 50’s Twist in northeast Edmonton. But this is not your average musical: it is an intergenerational production that brings together the talent of 33 children from the community and approximately 20 residents from CapitalCare Dickinsfield.
Though the children and residents have been working together weekly since January 2018 to learn songs, choreography, lines and create set-pieces and props for the performance, the beginnings of the musical can be traced back to the Northeast Community Summer Festival of June 2012. For it was through this festival that many children in the community found out about programs like Kid’s Kapers Day Camp and Fun in the Son. Some of the children who have attended these summer camps over the years are now participating in the musical.
“This project is all about creating a creative space for existing relationships to be strengthened while fostering new ones,” says Rebekah Ney, Children’s Pastor of Crosspoint Church and producer of the musical. “It has been an amazing collaboration of volunteers from Crosspoint Church, Emmanuel Community Church as well as staff and volunteers from CapitalCare Dickinsfield that has made this project possible. We are also grateful for the generous funding from Age Friendly Edmonton. We are excited to present Not Your Average Joe in May. Hope to see you there!”
