Performer Gets Kids Hoppin'

Manitoba Beaver

Alex Mahé has been performing for children since he himself was just a youngster helping to entertain his brothers and sister so "Mom" could get a break! Now he's a professional entertainer, delighting young audiences wherever he goes.

Mahé was at Beausejour Elementary School on October 19th as part of a Manitoba Tour sponsored by Canadian Parents for French. He is a French-speaking Canadian from Alberta. His show and songs mix French and English, encouraging everyone to enjoy and appreciate the diversity of our two official languages. Throughout his show he brings the children along, singing comfortably in French or English whether they speak the language or not . . . his exuberance, sense of humour, and joy in plain ol' good fun is not lost on the kids. Children shout and clap, exclaim and moan as his musical comedy fills the room.

Canadian Parents for French offers, through the cultural tour, a live French performer each year to our schools to help support the French language program, and promote better understanding among our children of the value of all languages.
