Performing Arts- Storytelling
Middletown author Gloria Smith Zawaski has written The Undercover Kids’ Holland Adventure series. The program she introduces to students, with its creative online interactive component and accompanying short story contest, makes this a perfect addition to school programs. Gloria and her characters (as puppets), Katie, Jake and their dog Cooper are available to visit schools. The title of her presentation is “How to open the door to your imagination.” Gloria’s 40-minute presentation is lively, giving the students the opportunity to think about what their Undercover Kids’ Adventure will be all about. The program has been developed for grades 4 through 6. And the books are available for sale at your school and the author will do a book signing. It works great because the program is based on the New York State curriculum guidelines. There is a 40-page Teacher Resource Guide available for download. It is great for cross curriculum programming. According to Gloria, “Children's lives are often too programmed. The Undercover Kids have a chance to lead authentic lives...learn from their own adventures...make their own decisions.”

Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
'Sing, Say, and Play!' in this participatory Christmas music and pageant performance that toasts the old year and welcomes in the new. Set in the Magical Days of Yore, it is fanciful weaving of historic music, traditions, and surprises. 'Wassail' comes from the Old English greeting Wes hael, meaning 'Be thou hail!' and wassailers even today go about England carolling friends & neighbors in this traditional musical well-wishing. To highlight the event, the audience takes on roles in a traditional mummers’ play - a lighthearted spectacle of singing, costumes and laughter. Mummers' plays are still performed in rural England as improvisatory theater in streets, homes, and community gatherings, and feature a host of characters who symbolically assist the sun in its turning through the shortest days of the year. The culminating event of the play is the grand Wassail Bowl, around which all gather to wish a fine Yuletide Season! Come One and All, Young and Old, Shy and Bold, and let thy fancies run free (and be sure to bring your cameras!)
