Edgecomb, Diane A Celtic Evening Literature- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Irish Culture comes to life with Storytelling, Song and the strains of the Celtic harp. In A Celtic Evening, Diane brings to life Ireland’s storytelling treasures from the humorous Legend of Knockgrafton to the hauntingly beautiful Deirdre of the Sorrows. The most famous of all Irish romances, Deirdre weaves together Druidic prophecies with a forbidden passion so profound it dares to defy the fates. The performance is set against a lush background of harp music: original and traditional melodies played by the versatile Margot Chamberlain on a variety of Celtic folk harps. Enjoy an evening of humor, passion and music with these two inspiring performers. A Celtic Evening is also available as a full musical event with the addition of Michael Punzak on story and fiddle and Tom Megan on accordion, keyboard and pennywhistle. Thoughtfully composed and beautifully presented, A Celtic Evening was a joy for us all. The combination of both your talents made for an inspirational evening that moved the audience to laughter and to tears, and left us with a feeling that magic was in the air.

Kallevig, Christine Discover Storigami Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Visual Arts- Folk Arts
Storytelling and origami together as one, two arts combined, doubles the fun! Discover Storigami with the award-winning author of ten books, including NATURE FOLD-ALONG STORIES and the new picture storybook, THE SUN, THE MOON, AND THE ORIGAMI GRAMMIE. A novelist and performing artist since 1991, Christine Kallevig folds giant-sized paper as she tells stories. Each fold represents an action, setting, or character, so by the time the story is over, a surprise origami figure is magically created. Included are audience fold-along activities, original material from her books, and origami adaptations of traditional folk tales. Christine uses music, humor, and large origami puppetry to dramatize the stories, and always finishes with an easy fold-along tale so that everyone has an origami souvenir to take home.

Latta, Tim Lattawork/Motion 360 Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Clowning,
Performing Arts- Dance
Is it theater? Is it dance? Is it circus? It’s all of these and more. It’s a performance for now- a new way of looking at creative thinking and how we can use it in our daily lives- in schoolwork, interactions with peers, building self esteem, confidence and tolerance. Everything and everyone around us has a story to tell and the potential to teach us something. In Motion 360, Tim Latta (former Pilobolus, Momix, Faustwork) demonstrates how we can, literally, stumble over everyday objects to unlock our creativity and help us discover what those stories can be. He creates dance/theatre pieces using objects that range from the ordinary (rollerblades and chairs) to the extraordinary (stilts, masks and milk cans!). While entertaining the audience, Mr. Latta is also teaching a whole new process of exploration. We learn that everything in the world around us can be used as a tool for creative problem solving. This process can be used in a classroom, a workplace and throughout our lives. Motion360 will leave audiences saying, “I can”. “Tim’s commitment to teaching and nurturing creativity in young people is obvious and infectious.” (All ages)

Whitcomb-May, Andrea Dig It! A Greta Garbage Puppet Show Nature- Environment,
Nature- Gardening,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
Greta peeks beneath the surface of dirt and asks- what is dirt and how is it made? Is there “good” dirt and “bad” dirt? Digging into nature’s recycling with worms, the puppets Jasmine & Tessy appear in a simple show about composting. Tessy is shocked & grossed out by the idea of manure & worm poop. Jasmine & the audience do their best to soothe her fears & assure her that worms are busy beneath the surface making new dirt. Worm poop, after all, makes the best soil. Butterfly, ladybug, & worm puppets have guest appearances as they eat, poop, & wander through the flowers. The audience gets to dig in at the finale when Greta opens her compost bin filled with real worms & shares the contents. Hand washing instruction included! Also starring Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. Puppet making workshops available.
