Friedman, Jeffrey StoryPlay InterACTIVE Children's Theater Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Visual Arts- Other
StoryPlay is as limitless and creative as a child's imagination! This program is designed so that children can take personally part in a storytelling activity by creating characters and making up their own lines in an interactive adventure led by Mom's Choice Award Winning storyteller Jason Edwards. It is suitable for any child old enough to talk and interact, because reading skills are not required for participation. Jason begins the story and cues the performers when it is time to deliver their lines. The storyteller’s prompts, such as “And the monster made a noise that sounded like…” or “But my mom didn’t believe me, so she said…” continue until the tale is guided to its ultimate conclusion. It may sound complicated, but children of all ages and levels of ability can successfully take part in this activity due to the clever scripting by Mr. Edwards, author of WILL ALLEN AND THE GREAT MONSTER DETECTIVE, WILL ALLEN AND THE RING OF TERROR, AND WILL ALLEN AND THE HIDEOUS SHROUD.

This is an excellent addition to my "Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy" program which covers their sound work.

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.

Fultz, Dave Problem Solving and Learning Through Juggling Performing Arts- Juggling
This is a fun, informative and unique program that uses learning to juggle as an example of how to keep negative emotions from getting in the way of the learning process. Western New York juggler, Dave Fultz, discusses how negative emotions such as fear, confusion, and frustration can get in the way when you are trying to learn something that you may find difficult. A step-by-step incremental approach is introduced where each step has a clearly defined objective. Once you reach your goal for each step, you are prepared and confident that you can handle the next step. Kid's will learn the very best tried and true method of learning to juggle while they learn to learn. This is a humorous, entertaining and memorable approach to education that students may find helpful for many years to come.
