Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Juggling
Melody Newcombe, professional circus arts clown, offers a hands-on tour of the art of balloon twisting, puppetry and ventriloquism and juggling for children ages 3 and up. This is an introductory program. Extend the program to 2 hours for more hands-on opportunities for children ages 8 and up to go beyond the basics to reinforce their newly learned skills, and to allow them to choose a specialty to work and play at such as twisting balloons into more creations, operating puppets while doing read aloud role playing with the puppets or practicing juggling skills with balls, scarves or spinning plates (non breakable).

Durst, James Work o' the Weavers/Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit single, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, the Weavers ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness and exuberance never before heard, they enjoyed surprising success until they were caught up in the hysteria of the Cold War anti-communist witch-hunts of McCarthism and HUAC, blacklisted and driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert and the Vanguard recording of the event gave heart to a generation and served to kindle the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folk performer would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story and timeless songs. Adhering faithfully to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Marthat Sandefer & Mark Murphy) repertoire includes the beloved familiar songs--as well as some the Weavers never sang, but might be singing were they still active today. Rousing, refreshing and relevant.

Bromka, Sondra & John Of Bards, Bagpipes, & Rhymers: Historic Music Rare and Rustic History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
A salmagundi of period instruments & styles combine for a delightfully unusual concert. In their crossover program 'Bards, Bagpipes, & Rhymers,' musicians Sondra & John Bromka begin by unravelling threads of evocative Medieval music... then weave in and out of it rustic folk traditions, still heard even today in the remote corners of France, Germany, and the British Isles. Side by side, these sounds enrich each other to paint vivid living pictures that evoke the boisterous village festivals, the soulful shepherds’ plaints, and the rich, mystical ballads that connected people of all levels of society. Bells & Motley are known for their uncommon instrumentation, and perform on a diverse collection of historic and folk instruments. For this presentation you’ll hear harp, hurdy gurdy, lute, Medieval fiddle, recorders, crumhorns, various French & English bagpipes, and more. The hurdy gurdy, built by Mr. Bromka, is a sort of Medieval keyboard fiddle enhanced with a resonant drone. Join Sondra & John in their Allegorical musical Garden, rich & resounding for all senses.

Clive, Young, May The Fan Film Be With You Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
May The Fan Film Be With You presents and discusses 15 of the best Star Wars fan films. In recent years, many movie fans have been inspired to make their own Star Wars films; using video cameras and powerful home computers for editing and special effects, these weekend directors have created a genre that became known as ‘fan films.’ Many of their homespun creations rival the original movies in quality and story, making these unusual films a permanent part of the Star Wars universe.

Most of these films are quite rare and have not been seen anywhere except the internet, but this program will screen them the way they were meant to be seen, in full-quality video. Additionally, the program will discuss the history of the growing fan film movement and explore what compels these budding filmmakers to invest so much effort into their personal visions of the Star Wars mythology. All material screened will be appropriate for the whole family, but discussion will be aimed primarily at adults and young adults.
