The Games Man, TREVOR Giants & Giraffes * Dragons & Detectives Other,
Performing Arts- Other
A UNIQUE PARTICIPATORY STAGE SHOW FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TREVOR starts out on stilts nearly 9' tall! The first half is his Aerial Delights: an up-in-the-air extravaganza of tricks and skills featuring Wind Whistlers, Ribbon Dancers, the color-changing Chameleon Stick, volunteers from the audience, lots of call and response, and loads of laughter! When he sits down and takes of the stilts, the group is always interested in how the stilts are made and having their questions answered. Then it's game time! First, large group games for the entire audience together. Who's the Leader? and Hula Hoop Basketball are perennial favorites. Next is brainteasers, guessing games, and minute mysteries. For the 7th inning stretch, we'll all stand up for a whole series of quick partner games, switching partners between each one (they're mixers, too!) Then we'll sit back down for one more large group game to pull everyone back together. And for the crowd-stopping closer, it's the fastest game in the world: it's all of 1 second long! All in all, an hour of sheer FUN for all ages. (Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project, too.)

DiLorenzo, Kris Acting Shakespeare in One Easy Lesson Performing Arts- Theater
Open to teens, too, this is a fun way for even non-actors to act: using the original method of the actors in Shakespeare’s troupe: they had no rehearsals and had only their own lines, not the whole script. The secret: Shakespeare's acting instructions are "coded" into the text, through devices like capital letters, strange spellings, odd punctuation, and even passages that make no sense. All you have to do to act the lines is be able to read them, and follow Kris's very simple instructions. No experience or British accents necessary!
