**Reduced fees available for multiple programs in one day or block booking with multiple libraries for the same day.** When children want to know if being an artist is a 'real' way to earn a living, or what it feels like to perform in front of hundreds of people, or what singing songs has to do with making a difference in the world, Ruth Pelham’s responses always serve as an inspiration for children. During this song-filled workshop, Ruth draws from her work as a songwriter, performer, recording artist, public speaker, educator, community organizer, and arts manager and conveys the message that the job of being an artist requires being good at one’s art form as well as in all of the skills that we learn in school--writing, reading, math, communicating, negotiating, problem-solving, and many more.

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.
