Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Silly, improvised fun kids will love. Steinbach’s Dr. Sprocket (Alan Fehr) infuses his show with laughter and learning. It’s hard to say how one show compares to the next, as each one features a different adult lab assistant (today it was the Crosseyed Rascals’ Mitch Krohn) and kids from the audience collaborating to make the Imaginarium come to life.
While risky, Dr. Sprocket’s concept has the benefit of a young audience who will go with whatever is thrown at them in the show’s 40 minutes. Attempting to teach kids the elements of a story — today it was tragic science fiction featuring an anti-hero — is applaudable. Whether or not they absorb much of this lesson is beside the point. Funny hats and wigs are worn, giggles ensue — the result of Dr. Sprocket’s experiment? Success.

Cast: Alan Fehr and special guests
Come join Dr. Sprocket on a journey into IMAGINARIUM!
What will today's story be about? A cowboy in outer space? Maybe a pirate who wants to learn ballet! Nobody knows what kind of story it will be until it's over.
Dr. Sprocket and his special Lab Assistants use improvised storytelling to edu-tain audiences of all ages in this fast-paced trip through classic literary devices.
