The Great Rhythmobile Adventure
Sat. March 18, 2017
John M. Parrott Gallery, Belleville Public Library
This theatrical performance features percussionists creating different rhythms using all sorts of everyday objects: balls, rackets, garbage cans, and other unexpected items.
The Rhythmobile – a super-powered, all-terrain, hybrid vehicle – has unfortunately run out of gas. Captain Kit Crash, the Rhythmobile’s clumsy driver, and his tinkering mechanic, Whiplash, have had to swerve off to the side of the road in a panic. To make things more complicated, the technologically sophisticated 4 x 4 can’t start without the right kind of high rhythm-rated fuel. Time is running out. Before falling too far behind in the rally race, our two adventurers immediately begin searching for their precious fuel: rhythm.
This production is designed for 2 to 5 year old children (the morning performance) and 6 to 12 year old children (the afternoon performance). Tickets are available locally at the Belleville Public Library and online at cfuwbelleville.com under Online Payments.
Percussionists Bruno Roy and Marton Maderspach have been featured at our Family Concerts some years ago: Rhythm & Stomp in 2008; The Great Rhythmobile in 2012; and Giggle & Stomp in 2015. Each time the audience feedback was terrific – children and adults loved their concerts!

Family Concert Fun!
