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

Beekman, Betty Stories In My Pocket Too Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
The Little Theatre of the Deaf performs for everyone in Sign Language and the spoken word. You SEE and HEAR every word. STORIES IN MY POCKET TOO, a 50-minute program filled with stories, fables, signing fun and interactive improvisation. We begin with a sign language warm-up that actually uses ropes to teach sign language! For those who know sign language, it is fun to guess what we'll come up with next. For those who do not, it is a fun and memorable way to learn. We have six large, colorful pockets on stage. Each pocket contains a theme. And we ask the audience to choose a pocket and we perform what they've picked. What will be in the orange pocket? Will it be signing fun, or fables? Whichever pocket is chosen, we will entertain, educate and enrapture. Included in our educational/outreach partnership, our LEARN AND STUDY TOGETHER GUIDE provides teachers with material about the performance, exercises and activities to do in the classroom pre and post-performance.

Based on Dr. Newborn's book (*LIBRARY JOURNAL STARRED REVIEW): SOPHIE SCHOLL AND THE WHITE ROSE. Using music, 80 historical images and suspenseful storytelling, Dr. Newborn recounts how Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans - former fanatical Hitler Youth leaders, the latter arrested for a teen same-sex relationship - transformed uniquely to become the greatest heroes of the German anti-Nazi resistance.  It was the only public protest against Nazis ever to be staged. But Dr. Newborn’s program does not remain in the past. Relating the White Rose story to today’s most compelling human rights issues, he presents an array of “White Rosers” today, abroad and at home - who risk themselves for freedom and our shared humanity.

Leeds, Dorothy Good Lessons from Bad Women History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
In Good Lessons from Bad Women, a devilishly funny one-woman show, our lead character, Dorothy, wrestles with the concept of goodness and dives deep into a world where good is bad and bad is good. Instructed from childhood by her mother to be a “good girl” like the ever-virtuous Eleanor Roosevelt, Dorothy wonders what might be on the other side of goodness. As she begins a journey from rebellion to reconciliation, she visits a series of infamous, disreputable women from different time periods and backgrounds. In seven vignettes and frequent conflicts with Eleanor Roosevelt, Dorothy learns from these fascinating women by becoming each one and imparting the subtle lessons they teach. By the play’s triumphant ending, she has gleaned wisdom from the original sinner, Eve, the guilt-free Mae West, the opportunistic Emperor Wu, the image-building Kathryn Kelley, the litigious Elizabeth Freeman and the pillaging Anne Bonney. Good Lessons from Bad Women has been performed at libraries, theatres, universities, and museums all over North America.

Crocker, Keith HAMMER HORROR - British horror films of the 1960's History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Hammer films of England produced some of the most exciting and colorful horror films ever made. They also created a star factory that included the likes of Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings) and Peter Cushing (Star Wars). Known for their lavish production values, splashes of gruesome viscera, and strong sense of sensuality, they redefined the genre in a way that still leaves it's mark on the current horror and sci-fi cinema of today. Join me for this introspective journey through the career of Hammer film studios, all the way through their humble poverty row productions of the 1940's through their shot to international recognition as the masters of horror and science fiction in the 1960's. Comes complete with a vintage memorabilia presentation plus a 16mm showing of a digest version of The Curse of Frankenstein (1957). A must when booking for the Halloween season of September/October.
$101- $200
