Anything is possible when children's imaginations and creativity run wild in the MonsterMaker program, which combines storytelling and craft-making into a single activity. During the performance of a creepy monster story, the children in the audience are called upon to fashion the MONSTERS that the character in the story must confront by using their imaginations and craft materials including Styrofoam balls, pipe cleaners, clay, molds, and cloth to produce effigies of something fearful. The crafters then help the performer to conquer these creatures by constructing the tools that inspire the bravery and confidence required to defeat them.

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.)
