Spagnuoli, Jason Teen Actor's Workshop Performing Arts- Theater
Teen Actor's Workshop promotes creativity, self-confidence, public-speaking skills, fun and more! Our class gives students a crash course in performance techniques for the theatre (body, voice, face, and speech), and then delves right into the making of a scene! Students choose a theme (family, friends, bullies, or anything they want-it’s their choice) and create an improvised scene with a small group. The final class is a culminating event that we invite friends, family and library patrons to; students will perform their favorite scenes from class. We welcome novices, as well as seasoned pros- the more, the merrier!

McKnight, Andrew Library Concert Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
Andrew's solo performances are a bit like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. He delivers his masterfully crafted cinematic vignettes of rural Americans and their struggles in memorable melodies and compelling twists of phrase. With his epic Civil War ballad 'The Road to Appomattox', the uplifting messages of 'Good Things Matter' (Great American Song Contest Winner), and his haunting anti-mountaintop mining song 'Made by Hand', audiences are spellbound from the first to the final note.
