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

Latta, Tim ME PLURIBUS UNUM History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
In ME PLURIBUS UNUM, we get a hilarious lecture-demonstration cum stump speech by the wanna-be Queen of the United States of America. In her negative attack campaign, she unwittingly makes the case for democracy as we know it, and shows us how lucky we are! As she argues that an absolute monarchy is so much easier than democracy (no questioning necessary, no thinking involved!) she points up the value of civic participation and involvement in our government. Her ironic criticisms of the American system cover the separation of powers, how laws are passed, taxes, and freedom of speech. At the end of her harangue, she demands a vote to end democracy in America so she can achieve her American Dream: to become queen of the greatest nation on earth. In the end she sees the paradox behind her dream. You can’t be queen of the greatest nation on earth if you take away everything that makes it great. It’s not Me pluribus unum, but E pluribus unum: out of many, one. Felicity Jones

!, Spook Handy American Folk Songs for the Whole Family History,
Music,

This program is simple. Let’s make sure our kids know some of the treasures of American Folk Music. We’ll sing old favorites like “This Land is Your Land”, “If I had a Hammer”, “I’ve been Working on the Railroad”, “She’ll be coming Around the Mountain” and maybe some newer songs. If the children don’t already know a song we’ll take the time to teach them. Parents are encouraged to sit with their children and help them learn the songs. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.

TheatreworksUSA, - THE CIVIL WAR History,
Performing Arts- Theater
Over one hundred and fifty years ago, the United States of America split in half as the north and south waged war against each other over preserving a way of life versus preserving the union. While decisions made by Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, and General Sherman affected the course of American history, ordinary Americans carried out these orders, and often made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. In telling the tale of this large and complex event, this Theatreworks show focuses on the smaller stories of some of the soldiers who are caught up in it, including, Zak, a runaway slave who demands the right to fight his own fight; Will, his former best friend and "master;" Johnny, an Irish immigrant who volunteers to defend his new home; and Jackie, a girl who becomes a drummer boy.
