March brings us all sorts of fun on the calendar. Spring arrives, St.Patrick’s Day is here, and of course there’s Spring Break to look forward to. Fill up your calendar with these fun family events and meaningful productions happening right here in Surrey.
Children of God
After a national tour, the production of Children of God arrives at the Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Avenue) for two shows on March 22 and March 23. The musical follows the Oji-Cree family’s children as they are sent to a residential school in Northern Ontario. This harrowing production is a tale of the resilience of the Indigenous spirit while touching on contemporary realities. Tickets are available online here, and the showtime begins at 8:00pm on both nights. This production is recommended for adults and children over the age of 14.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a little early at the Museum of Surrey (17710 56a Avenue). Celtic Fest takes place on March 16 from 1:00 to 4:00pm, and will be filled with family friendly activities. No need for Irish blood, captivating music, dancing, and crafts are available for everyone, just be sure to wear green!
Competitive Paint Off
Get a behind the scenes look at the artist process at the Competitive Paint Off at the Surrey Art Gallery (13750 88 Avenue) on March 23 from 6:00 to 9:00pm. 12 Artists will face off in four rounds using oil sticks.
