Crocker, Keith Lon Chaney Sr - Man of a Thousand Faces and More!: History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
Perhaps one of the least spoken about talents from the golden days of silent Hollywood film productions, Lon Chaney's influence on modern Hollywood make-up effects is second to none. Not only was he a fantastic make-up man, he was also one of the best actors of his time, very often choosing to underplay a part rather than go for the typical theatrics that punctuated the bulk of the performances from that era. Chaney had a smooth style all his own, and proved he could play just about any role handed to him which in turn, kept him from being typecast. Join us as we watch clips from some of Chaney's work including classics such as Phantom of the Opera (1925), The Unholy Three (1925), Tell it to the Marines (1926), and many more. This would make a great double booking with my Lon Chaney Jr. presentation. Perfect for the Halloween season!
$101- $200
Crocker, Keith HAL ROACH - Hollywood's Hidden King of Comedy Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Clowning
Hal Roach was certainly a well know producer, but so few realize that this man gave us some of the best comedic acts that Hollywood had to offer. From his humble roots being born to Irish immigrant parents in Elmira NY, to his journey to California to become a successful prospector, Hal Roach himself never envisioned becoming the King of Comedy. But he did, giving us Harold Loyd, Laurel and Hardy, The Little Rascals and so many more. This program focuses on Roach's early career and creative output, and will use 16mm comedy shorts to exemplify Roach's output.
$101- $200
Handy, Spook Spook Handy In Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Spook Handy in Concert is the most popular show I do. Instead of being theme oriented, this is just simply me, my trio or full band showcasing mostly original songs from my 4 CDs. Sprinkled with occasional 60s and 70s folk songs or an obscure original, this concert engages audiences of all backgrounds and ages. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.

Goldin, Amy Performing Arts Careers Performing Arts- Other
This is an interactive presentation for high school students who have loved participating in the performing arts in high school, and who are considering majoring in performing arts studies in college or other arts training programs after high school. In this career-focused presentation, I offer case studies about some performers who have made lifelong careers in the arts, as well as those who have gone on to different career paths, some related, some unrelated to the arts. We look at the emotional, life-cycle and financial rewards and challenges of arts careers, and the transferable skills related to studying the arts throughout a lifetime. I provide a wealth of unbiased resources and information about a range of performing arts training programs, colleges and universities, and careers. It is possible to arrange a multi-day workshop during which I will work with students in small groups and/or individually on developing their college lists and selecting audition material.
