1:30 pm BeMUSed
BeMUSed is a Saskatoon-based group of classically trained musicians who blend musical performances with literature and story-telling to create new and diverse concert experiences.
The BeMUSed for Kids series at the Refinery began with October’s Halloween Spooktacular, which was highly praised as “a dynamic presentation of classic music and stories,” with shadow puppetry, sing-alongs, and all sorts of fun. This series continues on March 11th, 2012. BeMUSed also gears performances to more mature tastes including The Cremation of Sam McGee at McNally Robinson and last year’s presentation of 84 Charing Cross Road at the Francis Morrison Library. BeMused is very happy to be a part of the Heritage Festival of Saskatoon. http://www.bemusedshows.ca
3:15 pm Super Ron Show
Ron Allcock AKA Super Ron had show biz in his blood from a young age. When he was a young boy he wanted to be the next Jerry Lewis. (Who didn’t want that?) Years later he was inspired by The Shields & Yarnell Show and discovered his true calling. He would be a street mime. Eventually. First he would be distracted by a couple of sports and then Rock N Roll. Mercifully the music dream died quickly. As a young adult he decided it was time to fulfill his street mime dream. Only thing was he had no idea what do. He decided he would be a juggler instead. While looking for some juggling supplies the magician at the store showed him a couple of magic tricks…that was over 20 years ago. Ron has performed his blend of magic and comedy since that time. From Manitoba to Alberta he’s made people laugh and go hmmm!
“Thank you for the amazing performance you gave us at our Volunteer Appreciation Day this week! There was much discussion following your show concerning many of your illusions; everyone seemed to have their favorite. … I must comment in particular, though on the strait jacket escape you performed while suspended upside down. You had me and the rest of the audience on the edge of our seats!”
