The roar of children’s laughter was heard throughout magician Leif David’s Unplug and Play performance Saturday at the Salmar Classic.
The theatre was packed for the first of David’s two Jan. 21 shows for Unplug and Play Week, hosted by the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) for Family Literacy Week. The second performance took place later in the day at the Enderby Drill Hall.
David kept his audience in stitches throughout most of his performance, especially when tricks were going awry. Several young volunteers were given the opportunity to be David’s assistant – and part of the act.
During Family Literacy Week, Jan. 21 to 29, LASS and partner businesses and organizations are hosting different Unplug and Play events throughout the Shuswap, each focused on encouraging family time without screen time.
