LaRue, Michele Eve's Diary History,
Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Mark Twain often wrote of Eden and the first couple's explorations of Earth. What is commonplace today was mystery then--every beast, plant, and scientific certainty a wonder newly discovered. Eve is eternally questioning, her passion for learning rivaled only by her love for Adam--from her first sighting of him (It had no hips; it tapered like a carrot!) to her profound examination of their centuries-long partnership. In this witty, poignant monologue, adaptor Gayle Stahlhuth ingeniously intertwines several Twain stories and essays--setting them A long time ago, in Heaven. Past sponsors of this production include Chicago's Newberry Library, the Chicago Book Festival, and Mohonk Mountain House. SAMPLE REVIEWS: Twain's generous, teasing Eve shows all the familiarity with her husband's flaws that you'd expect in a marriage of several hundred years. Michèle LaRue, in an actor's tour de force, brings her radiantly to life. --Robin Hirsch, Artistic Director, New Works Project, NYC It was a pleasure to work with you. The program was wonderful! Your blend of humor and touching moments was perfect. --Emily Rowe, Special Events, Missouri Historical Society, St. Louis

We use Traditional & Interpretive African dance, drum, song, folklore, poetry, hip hop, litugical dance, and even rap to teach morals, history, and cultural arts. We do this through performances and/ or classes.

Performing Arts- Puppetry
Welcome Park is opening a new visitor center and Bunny and his friends want to get in on the act. They approach Park Ranger Ned with the idea that they could teach visitors about the seasons. Ned is worried because each has a bad habit that could interfere with each one doing their best work: Bunny rushes through things; Dog gets herself so nervous she can barely speak; Bee tries to do too many things at once. What will Ned and the audience decide about their readiness to work in the new visitor center? This crowd pleasing show is for ages 3 through 8. While reinforcing important seasonal concepts, children will learn how to improve listening skills

Pelham, Ruth Meet the Artist! workshops and programs Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Other
**Reduced fees available for multiple programs in one day or block booking with multiple libraries for the same day.** When children want to know if being an artist is a 'real' way to earn a living, or what it feels like to perform in front of hundreds of people, or what singing songs has to do with making a difference in the world, Ruth Pelham’s responses always serve as an inspiration for children. During this song-filled workshop, Ruth draws from her work as a songwriter, performer, recording artist, public speaker, educator, community organizer, and arts manager and conveys the message that the job of being an artist requires being good at one’s art form as well as in all of the skills that we learn in school--writing, reading, math, communicating, negotiating, problem-solving, and many more. This workshop can be geared to topics such as career development, the arts, writing skills, music and performance, making life choices, and others.
