The Games Man, TREVOR Giants & Giraffes * Dragons & Detectives Other,
Performing Arts- Other
A UNIQUE PARTICIPATORY STAGE SHOW FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TREVOR starts out on stilts nearly 9' tall! The first half is his Aerial Delights: an up-in-the-air extravaganza of tricks and skills featuring Wind Whistlers, Ribbon Dancers, the color-changing Chameleon Stick, volunteers from the audience, lots of call and response, and loads of laughter! When he sits down and takes of the stilts, the group is always interested in how the stilts are made and having their questions answered. Then it's game time! First, large group games for the entire audience together. Who's the Leader? and Hula Hoop Basketball are perennial favorites. Next is brainteasers, guessing games, and minute mysteries. For the 7th inning stretch, we'll all stand up for a whole series of quick partner games, switching partners between each one (they're mixers, too!) Then we'll sit back down for one more large group game to pull everyone back together. And for the crowd-stopping closer, it's the fastest game in the world: it's all of 1 second long! All in all, an hour of sheer FUN for all ages. (Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project, too.)

He juggles any number of balls, clubs, rings, members of the audience . . . He balances strange items on the tip of his nose. Everything is accomplished wordlessly as Henry uses body language and gesture (and road signs!) to express himself. Caution: Henry is known to use innocent bystanders in his act. Henry the Juggler is a professional. He has been seen by tens of thousands up and down the East Coast - at theaters, schools, libraries and festivals. He has been performing for over thirty years. He studied physical comedy at California's Dell'Arte School and continues to expand his abilities through classes in yoga and tango. He is an active member of the International Jugglers' Association. A workshop follows each show, where Henry teaches some of the skills he has presented.

Crocker, Keith THE HONEYMOONERS - Jackie Gleason and Company - America's Most Beloved Television Show History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Clowning
Ok, here is the program I've had the most requests for. Join me for a delightful trip down memory lane as we investigate the career of comic actor genius Jackie Gleason and his entourage with focus paid to the classic series The Honeymooners, which aired from October 1, 1955 to September 22, 1956. Since the final broadcast, the Honeymooners has gone out to countless syndication showings which have resulted in New Years Eve marathon telecasts and festivals. The highlight of this program is a 16mm showing of a rare Honeymooners episode title Hello Mom (which aired December 3, 1951). Find out about Gleason, Art Carney, Audry Meadows, Joyce Randolf and the behind the scene stories of the show itself. Bound to be a very popular program, so book now! Praise from Edith Kalickstein of Long Beach Public Library regarding THE HONEYMOONERS - Jackie Gleason and Company - America's Most Beloved Television Show: The program was excellent and brought back many memories. I also had a few laughs. Thank you so much for sharing with the Long Beach community. They had such a good time.

Taikoza presents a unique and exciting program using Japanese Taiko drums (that weigh up to 200lb drums) and bamboo flutes. The program will take you on an unforgettable journey through Japan. It will take students to different areas and through the seasons of Japan. Students will be experiencing a new culture in a fun and exciting way, they will get a chance to see and at times touch the ancestral drums. The taiko drum has the power to touch everyone with its thunderous sounds and vibrations. Taikoza hopes to open the students’ eyes to the richness of the Japanese culture and spark an interest. We hope that this will spark an interest in other world cultures. Taiko has been associated with many aspects of Japanese culture since ancient times. It is said that Taiko was used to drive away the plague and evil spirits. In the Shinto religion, it was used to call upon and entertain the gods, or kami, and in Japanese Buddhism, its sound was the manifestation of the voice of the Buddha.

Barkan, Paul Michael The 'All You Need Is Read' Literacy Concert Featuring MOSTLY MOPTOP Literature- Poetry,

Beatles tribute band Mostly Moptop will perform a concert of Beatles music (and a few little surprises), but throughout we would do readings of prose and poetry not only by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, but also by key writers who influenced The Beatles such as Lewis Carroll, George Eliot, Shakespeare, and James Joyce (among several others). This promises to be a wonderful concert / library experience we would like to bring to the entire Public Library System.
