Boertzel, Brooke Fair and Square Anti-bullying Theater Workshop Performing Arts- Theater
This interactive anti-bullying performance and workshop for 3rd-5th grades helps students understand and responsibly deal with conflict. Three actor educators visit your library and perform an interactive drama which explores an incident that occurs within a fictional elementary school. Throughout the drama, highly trained actor educators periodically step out of role and facilitate talk-backs with the students, reflecting on the story. Throughout Fair and Square, students will witness important moments in the story where the characters are faced with difficult decisions. Through guided discussions, students will then actively explore the potential dangers of reactionary decision-making, and the consequences of those decisions. Towards the end of the performance, students become actors themselves as they take on roles in the drama, collectively determining the outcome of the story!

Crocker, Keith 3-D MOVIES - Comin' at Ya! History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
When Hollywood received competition from the television studios in the 1950's, they pulled out a secret weapon called 3-D. Wearing a pair of blue and red cardboard glasses literally allowed the images on the movie screen to jump right off the screen and right into the audiences lap. 3-D was a process that was far from perfect, but for a brief period of time it was a rage country wide and gave some new excitement to the idea of going to the movies. Recently, 3-D has re-emerged and is again gaining in popularity and giving the couch potato audience a reason to rise out of their seats and come back to the movies. This program is one of the most complete you'll ever see in regards to the history of 3-D films and it includes a memorabilia show including posters and stills, plus a DVD presentation of trailers for films originally shot in 3-D.

Imagine an instrument that the user plays without touching! As futuristic as it may sound, the Theremin has been around since the 1920’s, its haunting tones have been heard everywhere from Carnegie Hall to science fiction film scores. The Theremin is a simple-looking box with two antennae and unlike conventional instruments, it has no keys, strings, valves or buttons. Its volume and pitch are governed by proximity through an electromagnetic field. The experience is part music, part science and part story-telling. Hear the sound and history behind the first electronic instrument with performance artist Carl Welden, who will give a 'hands-off' demonstration, followed by Q & A. Audience members will then be given a rare opportunity to try this unique instrument for themselves, heralding quirky fun and loads of smiles!
