Oshlag, Rebecca and Rachel Midsummer Knights Tales: Stories of Heroes from the Middle Ages (2015 Summer Reading Program) Performing Arts- Storytelling
Adults will enjoy the accounts of heroes from King Arthur’s realm and other legendary kingdoms in the British Isles. Rebecca and Rachel employ their trademark dynamic style in both literary and traditional storytelling to bring modern translations of the Middle English works to their audiences. Story themes are universal and continue to be relevant now as they were well then. For example, the question, “What do women want?” was asked and successfully answered over 700 years ago. The knightly stories of heroic, and sometimes not so heroic, behavior continue to entertain and inspire, and modern adult audiences will appreciate them as much as did listeners during times long past. The tellers also provide an intriguing commentary on the historical context of the tales. Program length is 45-50 minutes with additional time for comments and questions. This program was developed for the 2015 Summer Reading Program but can be presented any time of the year. An adapted version for teen audiences is available as is a version to accommodate both teen and adult audiences.

Golden, Gail SCIENCE IS A BLAST! Multicultural- Other,
Multicultural- Native American,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
SCIENCE IS A BLAST! ties in closely with the summer reading program's Fizz, Boom, Read initiative. The Wondermakers tell 3 folk tales in story theatre style. The stories are from Eastern Europe, Asia, and the Native American culture and they have to do with science topics -- astronomy, health, and the weather. Children from the audience are selected to help The Wondermakers tell the stories by playing roles "on stage." It's fun (and educational) for children ages 3 - 10 and the whole family. Produced and directed by Gail Golden who recently moved back to New York State from Orlando where she was Cinderella's Fairy Godmother at Disney World.

Musco, Penny STEAL AWAY: THE STORY OF A HOMESTEADER AND AN EXODUSTER History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
STEAL AWAY is my one-woman show about a little-known piece of American history, which I originally wrote and performed as Artist-in-Residence of the National Park Service. Set in 1880, STEAL AWAY is told from the perspective of Priscilla, a white woman who leaves the East to homestead in the Plains with her husband and children. She crosses paths with Abigail and her family, former slaves who fled the South after Reconstruction ended. The narrative weaves together historical accounts of those who sought free land through The Homestead Act, and the significant but nearly forgotten movement of 20,000-40,000 blacks who headed north when the last federal troops were removed from the South. These African Americans called themselves Exodusters, likening their flight to the Biblical exodus of Moses and the Israelites out of Egypt. The show's title comes from the Negro spiritual of the same name. I’m a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of national publications. I also have a B.A. in Theatre. I’ve performed STEAL AWAY at many locations since 2009. While the program is appropriate any time of the year, it’s an especially good fit for Black or Women’s History Month, in February and March, respectively.
