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.

Boertzel, Brooke Fair and Square Anti-bullying Theater Workshop Performing Arts- Theater
This interactive anti-bullying performance and workshop for 3rd-5th grades helps students understand and responsibly deal with conflict. Three actor educators visit your library and perform an interactive drama which explores an incident that occurs within a fictional elementary school. Throughout the drama, highly trained actor educators periodically step out of role and facilitate talk-backs with the students, reflecting on the story. Throughout Fair and Square, students will witness important moments in the story where the characters are faced with difficult decisions. Through guided discussions, students will then actively explore the potential dangers of reactionary decision-making, and the consequences of those decisions. Towards the end of the performance, students become actors themselves as they take on roles in the drama, collectively determining the outcome of the story!

Theater, Arm-of-the-Sea Turtle Island Medicine Show Multicultural- Native American,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
Turtle Island Medicine Show is a contemporary fable and cautionary tale inspired by both the Lenape Indian origin story and by current reports from climate studies. The show features whimsical kinetic sculptures, richly painted paper mache masks and puppet figures that range in size from 12 inches to the 16 foot tall Tree of Life. Composer & music director Dean Jones' inventive score loops together gongs, hoop drum, jaw harp and trombone scats in a medley of live sound. He also supplies voices for narrator and characters. Meanwhile four nimble, shape-shifting performers bring to life the mask and puppet multitudes. The Lenape origin story describes a great flood and how various animals try to dive to the bottom and bring up mud. When one of them, Muskrat, finally succeeds and Duck and Frog spread the mud on Turtle's back, this tiny island grows into a mighty continent. Arm-of-the-Sea carries the tale into the fossil-fueled modern moment where climate change threatens to de-stabilize this Turtle Island home. Appropriate for family audiences and grades 1-8. School performances include a study guide and post performance discussion with cast. Photos and video available at www.armofthesea.org
