Our current repertoire includes: Rumpelstiltskin, Pied Piper, Cinderella Tales (compilation of: Yeh Shen, Glass Slipper, and Billy Beg and the Bull), Reluctant Dragon, Clinton's Ditch - Saga of the Erie Canal, among others. All of our shows are created to appeal to an audience aged 3 to 93, with a preference for performing to an audience of children with adults. Our goal is to inspire children and parents to go find the book, or books that the show is based on and read it for themselves. 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. Steamer No.10 is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts The Key is Reading – it Unlocks the Treasures of the World - Children’s Literature Brought to Life.

Rogers, Robert Professor Pennywhistle and the Round the World Story Balloon Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Theater
Imagine a magical balloon that knows when and how to touch down in the most exotic places right in the middle of a story, just at the most important moment. This is the invention of Professor Pennywhistle, whose curiosity and enthusiasm about exploring the world takes him - and us - to the most surprising places. It's a celebration of diversity - and more important - the common things that people share all around the globe. We'll visit the arid landscape of Africa, where the animals must remember the name of a tree that will drop its fruit only if they can shout it out loud; the Palace of the Emperor of China, who has lost his best friend - a nightingale - and doesn't know what to do; a little cottage in the woods of France, where an elderly woman learns the secret of a soup made from only a stone. And finally, we'll return to the good old U.S.A. and meet Pecos Bill, America's first cowboy, and help him lasso a wild tornado. We live in a big, wide, wonderful world, and Professor Pennywhistle is more than happy to be our tour guide.
