Crocker, Keith WILLIAM CASTLE - The Ultimate Showman History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
William Castle was the ultimate film promotion artist of the 1950's. Anyone who's ever seen House on Haunted Hill (1958), The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960) will attest to this. Emergo- The skeleton flying over the audiences who paid to see House on Haunted Hill, movie theater seats wired with a minor electrical voltage to give the audience of the Tingler the sensation that the Tingler itself was crawling up on them, or even the special glasses you needed to put on in order to see the ghosts in 13 Ghosts. Castle knew how to sell a picture and keep audiences coming back for more. This program will give you a complete history of William Castles, from his humble beginnings right through his pioneer horror pictures of the 1950's and finally to his acceptance by the art-house crowd for his production of Rosemary's Baby. Includes film memorabilia and a selection of trailers from Castles work via DVD. A perfect show for the Halloween season. NEW 2012

Bromka, Sondra & John Bells & Motley Victorian Musical Celebration of Christmas Past History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Music and customs of a traditional Christmas of Dickens' time included jovial and ceremonial songs with choruses for all to share, ballads steeped history, costumed characters or 'guisers,' tableaux and games, dances, and the presence of holly, ivy, and evergreen. This musical voyage back to the spirit of Christmas Past offers a magical time for family and friends to gather and share the origins of our traditions. Across England, wealthy households would celebrate with great musical feasts and pageants, and folks would go from door to door, singing wassailing songs that ended with the request for 'a toast and a good loaf or cheese, and we’ll be on our way.' Featured will be wassail songs from Cornwall, Somerset, and Gloucestershire. Other traditions will include a special processional bagpipe air from Northumberland to 'pipe your bounds' to insure abundance and well being throughout the new year. This peek behind the history of Christmas celebration uncovers the universal within the season's mirth and merriment, and plants the seeds of ideas for reestablishing some of the old traditional elements for community celebrations - further enriching the meaning and majesty of this important holiday season.

Levande, Meredith Monkey Monkey Music Interactive Show Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Meredith and her band give a very upbeat, interactive and educational performance which gets kids moving!

Monkey Monkey Music is seen on nationwide public television on both independent public television stations and PBS member stations. Her music teaches a broad range of preschool topics which include numeracy, movement, nutrition, and literacy. "Meredith sang a song about picking fruit in a garden and everyone felt like they were there in that garden. It was beautiful to see the children captivated by both the music and the original storybook that Meredith shared with them while she sang. This reinforced the library's mission of lifelong learning." Joanne Friedman, Children's Librarian, Kearny Library. "Monkey Monkey Music is highly professional, interactive, and entertaining. Both the children and parents really enjoyed the program. They danced, they participated, and remained engaged the entire duration of the show.
