In this exhaustively researched show by actor, director, and performer Adam G. Gertsacov, Henry Hudson comes to life in a thrilling re-telling of his adventures on the high seas.

The show imagines Hudson having just returned from his fateful third voyage and giving a presentation to “investors” (the audience) about his fourth voyage to continue his quest for the Northwest Passage to China. Through the course of the show, audience members will have the opportunity to “join” his crew, learn a sea shanty, learn how to navigate using state of the art sixteenth century instruments, and hear his thrilling tale of landing in the New World and visiting this strange new island named Manna-Hatta. At the end of the performance, audience members are encouraged to ask Henry any questions they like about his rich and varied life as a sea captain, explorer, navigator, and Elizabethan gentleman.

Nall, Christine Face Painting by CHRISTINE Other,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Painting
I have been building children's imaginations through face painting for 12-years now, in both Texas - where I am originally from and New York City - where I currently live. I believe a child's most creative years are when they are young and if we build on their imagination we help them continue to be creative throughout their lives. So their imagination will be open to exploring this grand world around them in a creative way. In many ways they are more creative than I am, and I am always amazed at the ideas they come up with for me to transform them for a few hours. As an artist, art teacher and a professional face painter I do my best to encourage their imaginations to run wild! My talents are not limited to only children's parties, as I have also been hired for adult events and Masquerade balls. I received my BFA - Bachelor's in Fine Art from the University of Texas in Austin. Examples of where face painting is a wonderful addition to a planned event : children's birthday parties, work / company parties, school events, openings, promotions, holiday parties, Halloween, Purim, Mardi Gras, and many more! www.christinenall.com
