Crocker, Keith LAUREL & HARDY: THE SILENT YEARS Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Clowning
This is an excellent addition to my "Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy" program which covers their sound work. In this program we examine how the classic comedy team got paired together by Producer Hal Roach, and we look at the silent short comedies produced in the late 1920's. We will watch one of their classic silent short comedies, Do Detectives Think from 1927. It was this short that solidified the classic persona they would adapt and in term would make them the most recognizable comedy teams in history. This program uses DVD.

jacobs, beth music movement and books Performing Arts- Dance,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Program session #1 is aimed mostly at preschoolers, is thirty five to forty five minutes in length. A basic introduction of dance and stretch combined with sharing of rhythm instruments and maybe some accompaniment by world music. We will use library books to find images for the dances which are accompanied by the singing of rhyming song and maybe the instruments and /or world music. Program session #2 is aimed at older participants, is forty five minutes to one hour in length, follows a similar pattern but it involves mostly dances I’ve developed over the years to world music that I’ve created working in preschool and elementary education. And instead of singing rhymes the participants may create a "movement play" by individually referencing something in a book, creating a move for it and talking briefly about the subject.
