Nov-Dec update & Santa!
Hello there! Lucas here with our monthly update!
November was chocker block full of shows including a 5 day tour with Russ The Bus & The Sydney Writers Festival. The Proud Foots show performed in Western Sydney schools and it was a blast. Thank you to all the students and teachers who attended the sessions and a big shout out to Billy, Emma & Clare for organising this week of fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8crCz6GO-Dc
December will see a limited run of shows that include several Christmas performances for pre schools in Northern NSW & South East Qld.
The Proud Foots school holiday show will continue into January 2018 with Brisbane Libraries, Vacation Cares and Tweed Coast Tourist Parks which will keep the young ones on their toes.
Lastly, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the last year. Being my first book release, I’m super appreciative of this and I look forward to sharing more exciting projects with you all in 2018.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and happy and safe New Year!
Lucas & The Proud Foots
The month of October has been pretty relaxed with no tours booked and no aeroplanes-hotels-hire cars required. Whilst it’s been nice and cruise-zee the Proud Foot show has been movin & groovin locally in schools around South East Qld. Highlights have been several night camp shows along with some Brisbane Kindy performances which are always a good fun.
With November poking it’s nose around the corner the Proud Foots head off to Sydney to perform with ‘Russ the Bus’ visiting schools in the western suburbs. ‘Russ the Bus’ is part of the Sydney Writers Festival and the Proud Foots are stoked to part of this great initiative: https://www.swf.org.au/childrensfestival/russ-the-story-bus/
That’s about it for now but be sure to check out the website for free song downloads and free colouring in sheets for the everyone to enjoy!
Will be back soon with more updates!
