!, Spook Handy The Songs of Peter Paul and Mary History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
There's a great picture of the Beatles back stage at the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 staring in awe at Peter Paul and Mary. The Beatles knew they were in the company of incredible and important musicians. This trio did more to make American folk music accessible to the masses than anyone else. People all over the world sang along to "Puff the Magic Dragon," "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "Blowin in the Wind." And audience members can't help but sing along with Spook as he leads them through this heart-opening, educational, and voice-raising program! (Occasionally, Spook is joined by Paul Prestopino who toured with PPM for 15 years as a back up musician.) An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

LaRue, Michele The Yellow Wallpaper History,
Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Theater
A vibrant performance of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s classic: =The Yellow Wall-Paper.= In 1885, marriage, a well-meaning husband, and a questionable =cure= brought Gilman to her knees. Relying on blind faith, instinct, and courage, she willed herself back to health. Perhaps vital to her recovery was writing her brilliant =The Yellow Wall-Paper,= published in 1891. Transforming autobiography into fiction, she penned [pronounced editor William Dean Howells] a story =to freeze our young blood.= Gilman’s tale continues to chill readers today, dazzling feminists and historians, mystery- and horror-story enthusiasts alike, with its wit, suspense, and superlative style. Michele has performed a fully staged production of THE YELLOW WALLPAPER--adapted and directed by Warren Kliewer--in theatres from Maine to Minnesota to Virginia, for 20 years. THIS readers' theatre interpretation is designed for smaller and simpler library spaces. Michele's careful research guarantees a production faithful to its historical context. Costumed in a bustle dress of the period, Michele stretches the boundaries of oral interpretation in a performance capturing every nuance of Gilman's exquisite writing. =Your portrayal of that ingenious crazy woman is still with me.= National Portrait Gallery, DC. =LaRue is as close to perfect as possible.= Midland College, TX

Field, Barb Balloon Art! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Visual Arts- Other
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. BJ will encourage the participants to have fun while they use their own creative ideas to design unique balloon sculptures. She will show them how to prepare the balloons and a few different ways to twist them. Then they will need to think and plan ahead. This involves a little bit of painless, hands-on deliberating about dividing and fractions … how much balloon do I have left to twist how many legs??? Although some participants may want to learn how to make a standard balloon dog, BJ prefers to encourage them be creative on their own and see what they can design. THIS PROGRAM IS BEST SUITED FOR SECOND GRADE TO ADULTS. www.bjandcompany.com

Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Spook Handy in Concert is the most popular show I do. Instead of being theme oriented, this is just simply me, my trio or full band showcasing mostly original songs from my 4 CDs. Sprinkled with occasional 60s and 70s folk songs or an obscure original, this concert engages audiences of all backgrounds and ages. 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.
