A solo puppeteer/storyteller explores the fantasy world of one of Victorian England’s best-known authors and illustrators. Set in an old-fashioned nursery, this performance includes three favorite Beatrix Potter stories as seen through the eyes of a young English girl growing up at the beginning of the twentieth century. As she pursues the everyday activities of playing and learning, the tales of “Two Bad Mice,” “Jeremy Fisher,” and “Jemima Puddleduck” seem to grow from her imagination. This 45 minute show incorporates hand, rod, and shadow puppets with storytelling and song in a style that is sure to please young and old alike. Licensed by Frederick Warne & Co.

Richter, Chip Imagination, Creativity and Inspriation Music,
Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter’s Family Concert at The Library has become a favorite among librarians and families because it's “more fun than a Kid (or Parent) should be allowed to have!” It’s the kind of high-energy fun and audience participation naturally found in a live performance all in the wonderful learning environment of the public library. This is live music, no accompaniment tracks, so anything can happen! With his guitar, banjo, harmonica, stories and original tunes Chip connects with the kids and adults, creating moments to remember. Also don't forget to check out the Librarians Resource Page where you can download some of Chip's music absolutely free of charge. Librarians are using these mp3s and the Teacher's Tips to compliment story-times with children.

McIntosh, Story Laurie Journey to Ellis Island: An Immigration Story Genealogy,
History,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
In this touching and powerful performance, Story Laurie portrays her grandmother as an immigrant girl full of hopes and dreams. Listeners travel with the young Carmela on this emotional (and often humorous) journey as she departs her hometown of Potenza, Italy, crosses the Atlantic and arrives in New York Harbor, ready to begin a new life in a strange and magical land. The performance (25-30 mins.) is followed by a discussion/Q&A session about US immigration. Journey to Ellis Island is also available as a residency program where Laurie helps students develop the skills to research their own family stories. The residency culminates in individual or group art projects (eg. a song written by students and which tells of the collective immigrant experience; class “quilt” that depicts each family’s story).

Durst, James Work o' the Weavers/Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit single, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, the Weavers ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness and exuberance never before heard, they enjoyed surprising success until they were caught up in the hysteria of the Cold War anti-communist witch-hunts of McCarthism and HUAC, blacklisted and driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert and the Vanguard recording of the event gave heart to a generation and served to kindle the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folk performer would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story and timeless songs. Adhering faithfully to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Marthat Sandefer & Mark Murphy) repertoire includes the beloved familiar songs--as well as some the Weavers never sang, but might be singing were they still active today. Rousing, refreshing and relevant.
