Edgecomb, Diane New Age Gawain and the Green Knight History,
Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
A Mischievous Medieval Romp! Diane Edgecomb accompanied by Margot Chamberlain – Celtic Harp. The stakes are high for Arthur’s men’s group. First, into their midst, comes a bungee-jumping Green Man who delivers an ancient macho challenge. Then a mysterious rider gallops off with his head under his arm, taunting Gawain to follow. But the greatest fun comes when three very different female archetypes use their wiles in an attempt to corrupt Gawain’s new age virtue. Welcome to New Age Gawain and the Green Knight, Edgecomb’s hilarious send up of the men’s movement. Loosely based on the 14th century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Edgecomb’s comedic adaptation has New Age Arthurian knights running for their therapists faster than you can say Litigation! Tom Megan’s score provides a lush atmosphere of sound as we journey along the ‘road less traveled by’ in this fun loving tale.. This 50-minute performance can be combined with other seasonal tales for a longer wintertime program or stand alone as entertainment for any time of year. Appropriate for audiences ages 12 and up. This unusual New Year's tale is available in December and January. Humorous and entertaining parody - Booklist Magazine

Goldin, Amy Performing Arts Careers Performing Arts- Other
This is an interactive presentation for high school students who have loved participating in the performing arts in high school, and who are considering majoring in performing arts studies in college or other arts training programs after high school. In this career-focused presentation, I offer case studies about some performers who have made lifelong careers in the arts, as well as those who have gone on to different career paths, some related, some unrelated to the arts. We look at the emotional, life-cycle and financial rewards and challenges of arts careers, and the transferable skills related to studying the arts throughout a lifetime. I provide a wealth of unbiased resources and information about a range of performing arts training programs, colleges and universities, and careers. It is possible to arrange a multi-day workshop during which I will work with students in small groups and/or individually on developing their college lists and selecting audition material.

Rogers, Robert Little Leonardo History,
Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Theater
Take a trip back in time to the 1400’s and spend a day in the simple Italian town of Vinci, where a remarkable young boy named Leonardo once lived. Watch as he takes his first few steps toward greatness, by letting his imagination fly and his curiosity take hold of everything around him. An apprentice in the studio of Master Verrocchio, Leonardo is exposed to the wonders of art and science. He paints, he studies, he builds – in short, he lets his dreams come true. The man who would come to be known as the painter of the Mona Lisa had to start somewhere, and this is an imaginary tale of how it happened. The Robert Rogers Puppet Company was founded in 1980, and has since performed thousands of times across the country and around the world. While it is available all year, providing meaningful, artistic productions for summer reading programs is an especially enjoyable pursuit for the troupe.
