Students from local dance school Imagine Studios will be joining Mini Pop Kids on stage at Showplace Performance Centre in downtown Peterborough on Saturday, April 8th.
Mini Pop Kids, Canada’s best-selling children’s music group, kicked off their 2023 Canadian tour in Calgary on February 12 and will now be performing two shows in Peterborough on April 8. With the 2 p.m. matinee show almost sold out, a 6 p.m. evening performance has been added.
Tickets range from $41 to $52.87, depending on seat location, with VIP tickets costing $82.25. Tickets are available in person at the Showplace box office (290 George St. N.) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday or online anytime at showplace.org.
Mini Pop Kids is a concert experience for both children and their parents featuring kids performing family-friendly covers of the year’s biggest hits (alongside throwback favourites) from artists including Lizzo, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, BTS, Harry Styles, Olivia Rodrigo, and more.
First launched in the 1980s with talented children singing pop hits of the day, Mini Pop Kids went on to sell millions of albums worldwide. With the original Mini Pop Kids fans now grown up with kids of their own, the famous K-tel brand relaunched Mini Pop Kids in Canada in 2004.
Since then, Mini Pop Kids has been Canada’s top children’s music group for 19 years, topping the iTunes and Billboard charts with more than a million albums sold and over 2.3 billion digital streams across all platforms so far.
For the Showplace Performance Centre performances, students from Imagine Studios dance school in Peterborough will join Mini Pop Kids on stage.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for local kids to be part of a professional production, and hopefully encourage them to shoot for their dreams,” a K-tel representative tells kawarthaNOW.
You can get a taste of Mini Pop Kids with their recent video for “About That Time”, a family-friendly cover of Lizzo’s ’70s-inspired disco-funk earworm “About Damn Time” that includes highlights from Mini Pop Kids’ 2022 tour, including the kids’ high-energy performances and fun-filled interactions with fans.
