The Act Presents series brings artist Fred Penner to Male Ridge on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 4 p.m.

A two-time Juno Award winner for Best Children’s Album, Penner “performs songs with values that are constant in the human spirit in every generation,” says his publicist.

His songs relive childhood memories and revive favourite tunes, and they introduce little ones to his energetic musical stylings, that are aimed at the whole family.

Preceding the show will be A Christmas Tradition, which is a free pre-show celebration from 1-4 p.m. in the Act lobby and studio theatre

The public is invited to take part in arts and crafts, entertainment, refreshments and caroling from at an inaugural Christmas open house/tree lighting party. It is a free event and all are welcome. There will also be a tree lighting ceremony at 5 p.m.

Unwrapped donations of new toys for children under 10 will be accepted on behalf of Christmas Haven.
