The St. John's Folk Arts Council
Chris Brookes and Christina Smith
Do you have a secret desire to dress up in funny clothing? Would you like to learn the best secrets of being a party-crasher for the holiday season? The Mummers Play is just the ticket!
A one-day workshop on the Mummers Play will be held at the Masonic Temple on Cathedral Street on Saturday, Nov. 17th and will include interactive sessions. Chris Brookes will lead you through the history of mummering in Newfoundland. He'll teach you how to build a hobby horse and put together a costume. With the musical help of fiddler Christina Smith, he will show you how to stage your very own play. He will also explain the strategies for successful party crashing. Chris is a founding member of the Mummers Troupe and an award-winning documentary producer for radio and television.
