Rogers, Robert Professor Pennywhistle and the Round the World Story Balloon Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Theater
Imagine a magical balloon that knows when and how to touch down in the most exotic places right in the middle of a story, just at the most important moment. This is the invention of Professor Pennywhistle, whose curiosity and enthusiasm about exploring the world takes him - and us - to the most surprising places. It's a celebration of diversity - and more important - the common things that people share all around the globe. We'll visit the arid landscape of Africa, where the animals must remember the name of a tree that will drop its fruit only if they can shout it out loud; the Palace of the Emperor of China, who has lost his best friend - a nightingale - and doesn't know what to do; a little cottage in the woods of France, where an elderly woman learns the secret of a soup made from only a stone. And finally, we'll return to the good old U.S.A. and meet Pecos Bill, America's first cowboy, and help him lasso a wild tornado. We live in a big, wide, wonderful world, and Professor Pennywhistle is more than happy to be our tour guide.

DiLorenzo, Kris SHAKESPEARE’S WOMEN: THEY’RE NOT WHO YOU THINK THEY ARE! Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Juliet’s a romantic teenager, Lady Macbeth’s an evil conniver, Kate’s an untameable shrew─ wrong! Shakespeare never paints a one-dimensional portrait. There’s much more to these and other females like Queen Margaret, Hermione, and Tamara, than meets the eye─ and you may be very surprised by what they’re really like. The clues to their personalities are in Will's original scripts. Actress Kris Dean performs Shakespeare’s women the way he wrote them, not the way we’re used to seeing them. You'll never look at them the same way again! Kris trained at the Royal National Theatre Studio in London, studied with Royal Shakespeare Company members, and was a master student of director Patrick Tucker, London’s Original Shakespeare Company founder. She has played many classical roles on the New York stage and appeared in Provincetown and Boston, as well as in her own one-woman show. Kris is a member of SAG and AFTRA
