“I love engaging kids in questions about the making of the work,” she says. “Parents asking them to look up and see how many lights they see, what props they remember and what choreography really stood out to them. Do they see any color themes? What materials did they see on the set?”. Familiarity is also your friend. So if you are planning to take in “A Christmas Carol,” think about visiting the Dickens Fair as well. That way your child can have a chance to really think about the past, how it is different from the past but also how it is the same.

Liam Howlett, founder of the group, said Flint had taken his own life. “Our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend. I’m shell-shocked, … angry, confused and heart broken,” Howlett said on Instagram. “R.I.P brother Liam.”. Keith Charles Flint was born in London in 1969 and after leaving a broken home, he spent time in Israel as a market-stall trader. He didn’t take his main school exams. Will Hodgkinson, rock critic for The Times, said Flint personified the British rave culture of the early 1990s. “After meeting Howlett at a rave in 1989, Flint helped to turn the Prodigy into a band that captured the spirit of young Britain at the time: hedonistic, semi-legal, and definitely interested in doing some freaky dancing at a rave at 3 in the morning, ideally on ecstasy,” Hodgkinson said.
