Brooklyn’s treasured children’s performer Mil’s Trills invites little theatre-goers to sing, dance, laugh, and let it all out
“Amelia Robinson has the inexplicable ability to bring smiles to the faces of both parents and children. Hopefully soon she can put one on yours"- Broadway Baby ★★★★
VERNON, BC— Brooklyn-based artist and Grammy® nominated producer Mil’s Trills brings their high-energy, participatory performance Let it Out! to the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre on October 2 at 4:00PM.
Let It Out! is part of the VDPAC’s SPOTLIGHT First Stages Series, which presents shows programmed specifically for young audiences ages 2 and up and those who prefer a gentler sensory experience.
“I like to call First Stages Series our ‘no shushing series’ because the kids can be themselves, make noise and get up if they need to. It’s a relaxed, family-friendly environment,” said Kennedy.
Mil’s Trills is a children’s music project that uses highly interactive performances and beautifully produced recordings of original songs to encourage everyone – kids, parents, caregivers, and families - to appreciate and connect with one another through music and fun. It is led by musician, composer, and vocalist Amelia “Mil” Robinson, who performs her lively original tunes with a cast of rotating musical guests. The Brooklyn-based artist’s accolades include a Grammy® nomination, a Parents’ Choice® Award, and over 5 million plays on Spotify.
“Let it Out! Is all about helping kids reduce their stress by helping them learn to identify, accept, and process emotions in positive and affirming ways,” said Amelia Robinson. “Kids are invited to sing, dance and, well, let it all out!”
Robinson has performed around the world from Carnegie Hall to Broadway, Edinburgh Fringe, and the East End Film Festival in London. Mil's Trills' music can also be heard on the children’s album, Songs for a Healthier America, produced as part of former First Lady, Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle in youth.
“Amelia is an absolute delight and an extraordinary talent,” said artistic director Erin Kennedy. “She has boundless enthusiasm and warmth that will make you smile, laugh, and feel welcome.”
