Torgan, Keith Little Kids Little Songs Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Little Kids Little Songs is a fabulous introduction to live music, comedy and theatre for children ages two through eight and practically guarantees a wonderful time. While it's true that Little Kids Little Songs has funny and extremely interactive songs and stories from beginning to end the best thing about it is how it addresses the fear of participation and very gently gets the most timid children playing, laughing and singing before the show is even half way through. Soft, sweet, playful and funny - the original music and storytelling of Keith Torgan and the virtuosity of flutist Barbara Siesel will tickle not only the newest and youngest of audience members but anyone within earshot! Ideal for ages 2-8

Agostino, Christopher Hero Tales! from Christopher Agostino’s StoryFaces Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Visual Arts- Painting
Hero Tales! The Original Superhero Stories - featuring adventure tales and legends from around the world in an exciting performance for all ages. My favorite stories to tell to children are traditional hero tales — the original Superhero stories — especially those that feature young or small protagonists, like Li Chi Slays the Dragon, an ancient tale from China about a brave maiden that saves her village, or Punia and the King of the Sharks, about a boy who battles a shark. The reason Punia is so brave is because he is small — which is a wonderful encouragement to give to kids, that the small can be heroes, as in Aesop’s Fable The Lion and the Mouse. StoryFace shows are a surprising combination of storytelling and visual arts that fully engages the entire audience. A wide variety of tales are available to suit the ages of your audience, including samurai adventure tales for older kids. If I’ve been to your library before, I keep a record of what I’ve told, so I can always return with new stories for your audience. Go to to see the video: What Is A StoryFace?

We love books and our life is about bringing them to life on the stage while remaining to true to the author, or the tradition out of which the story came. Each show is created to tour with 3-4 actors and a stage manager, a touring set and costumes; depending on venue we can also bring lighting and sound system.

Donohue, Pat Mr. Beau the Clown Performing Arts- Clowning
Clowning that is NOT scary since I transform from a dad to a clown right in front of the audience! My 33rd year of offering a show that is the funniest clown show you'll ever see. Last year alone I clowned at 72 different Libraries (some 2 or 3 times!) I do a pre-show visit as Pat Donohue, then an hour show of juggling, magic, puppetry, pantomime, balloon animals (made ahead of time so there's plenty for everyone!!) plus good, clean humor. After the show I visit with the audience. I am on the advisory board of my neighborhood library and 4 of our 5 sons work or have worked at Libraries so during the show, I encourage people to use and support their Libraries. Plenty of references from Librarians to share with you.

LaRue, Michele The Apple Tree: a celebration of spring and poor housekeeping History,
Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Theater
Old Sarah Blake—=small and intense=—is a relentless dynamo of obsessive good housekeeping. Her neighbor, Sam Maddox—a gangly giant of a man—has =lived somehow without much work.= When a fall through =one of Mother’s nice cane seat-chairs= puts old Edison Blake out of commission, the Maddox family learns =It’s terrible hard work cleanin’ house.= The collision of these two very different couples on one eventful afternoon reveals the true value of a glorious spring day. New England author Mary E. Wilkins Freeman conjures her story with insight, humor, and affection. Written in 1903, THE APPLE TREE harkens back to a time when literature was written for the ear, and Freeman’s evocative prose gives LaRue ample opportunity to enthrall. In her honest, vibrant performance, the actress embodies four distinct characters, using “Down Eastern” dialect to recreate a lost era. Michele is a member of both actors’ unions: Actors’ Equity and SAG-AFTRA. She has performed vintage American short stories for two decades, touring nationally with a wide-ranging repertoire of TALES WELL TOLD.
