Museums,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
Illusion has triumphed. And so has Michael Graham, who gives life, at least momentarily, to a most improbable cast of characters. The New York Daily News The Spring Valley Puppet Theater has been performing for schools and libraries throughout New England for over 30 years. Each performance combines delightfully original scripts, appealing characters, beautifully hand-crafted hand and rod puppets, lighting, music and humor. The result is highly entertaining puppet theater. A highlight of each library program is an informative and exciting behind-the-scenes look at the technique and artistry used in puppet theater, including a demonstration of favorite characters. In most school assembly performances, the front curtain is removed and students are invited to explore the art of puppetry through an insightful and absorbing question and answer period. A wonderful educational experience! Productions include Jack and the Beanstalk (1994 UNIMA Award recipient.) The Three Wishes, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, The Lazy Fox/ El Zorro Perezoso (bilingual,) Puss in Boots, A Holiday Fantasy. All shows play to a maximum audience of 350.

McGrath, Cathy “SONGS OF SUFFRAGE, ONE HUNDRED YEARS HENCE” History,
Museums,
Music
Join in singing the songs that the suffragists sang as they struggled for woman’s right to vote. Song sheets will help you raise you voice in protest so you can imagine the convictions of the women and men of the past working for woman’s suffrage. Many suffrage songs were crafted from the popular songs of the day. One advantage of this was that suffragists could sing the songs together immediately, since they already knew the melody and only needed the new words. Then they could sing them at meetings, conventions and demonstrations in efforts to convince others. These songs are the statement of the people, the story of their struggles and of their courage. When we sing them together now, we remember and honor those who went before us, leading the way in voting rights. An experienced folk music performer, Cathy McGrath uses an 1870’s guitar, antique flute, and rolled tin whistle in this historical program that encourages audience participation. She first performed this program in 2004 for the Genesee Country Village & Museum. It seems perfect to offer this program again for the 100th anniversary of Women's Suffrage.
