Crocker, Keith LON CHANEY JR - From Lenny to the Wolfman - Hollywood's Under Appreciated Boogeyman Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Theater
Here's a fantastic program that explores the career of Lon Chaney Jr. Born to Silent film legend Lon Chaney Sr, Chaney Jr's career was seriously sidelined by both his father and the Hollywood studios who felt the need to keep type casting him despite the fact that he was actually a very versatile performer. From his birth all the way to his height of popularity and finally his fall in Hollywood this program will show Chaney's versatility by utilizing various film clips from his horror and non horror pictures, and it will paint the picture of an actor who had so much to offer but was given such a limited space to display it all. Includes a fantastic amount of movie memorabilia and anecdotes about Chaney's career.

Performing Arts- Other
AN ENERGETIC EVENT FOR ACTIVE PEOPLE Although we won't be running the entire time, this is an active event popular with college students, teens, and older school age children with energy to spare. It's an hour of active, non-sports, everybody-wins, strategy games that challenge you no matter what your skill levels. And, if breathers are needed, we'll sit down for a few Minute Mysteries to challenge their brains while their bodies rest. What kind of games? Try this: it takes team work for everyone to catch the runner in Line Cross, and it certainly is a challenge for one lone individual to hold everyone at bay in Smaug's Jewel. It's 1-on-1 competitive running in Elbow Tag, and everyone working together to get untangled in Knots. Lots of tag games, including Cross Tag, Blob, Rock Paper Scissors Tag, and the incomparable Go Ten. Plus unusual team games like Dho-Dho-Dho, Lemonade, and Elves Giants & Wizards! All in all, it's a solid hour of excitement, a total blast, and a might lot of FUN! Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project.
