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.

A UNIQUE PARTICIPATORY STAGE SHOW FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TREVOR starts out on stilts nearly 9' tall! The first half is his Aerial Delights: an up-in-the-air extravaganza of tricks and skills featuring Wind Whistlers, Ribbon Dancers, the color-changing Chameleon Stick, volunteers from the audience, lots of call and response, and loads of laughter! When he sits down and takes of the stilts, the group is always interested in how the stilts are made and having their questions answered. Then it's game time! First, large group games for the entire audience together. Who's the Leader? and Hula Hoop Basketball are perennial favorites. Next is brainteasers, guessing games, and minute mysteries. For the 7th inning stretch, we'll all stand up for a whole series of quick partner games, switching partners between each one (they're mixers, too!) Then we'll sit back down for one more large group game to pull everyone back together. And for the crowd-stopping closer, it's the fastest game in the world: it's all of 1 second long! All in all, an hour of sheer FUN for all ages. (Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project, too.)

Music,
Performing Arts- Other
A salmagundi of period instruments & styles combine for a delightfully unusual concert. In their crossover program 'Bards, Bagpipes, & Rhymers,' musicians Sondra & John Bromka begin by unravelling threads of evocative Medieval music... then weave in and out of it rustic folk traditions, still heard even today in the remote corners of France, Germany, and the British Isles. Side by side, these sounds enrich each other to paint vivid living pictures that evoke the boisterous village festivals, the soulful shepherds’ plaints, and the rich, mystical ballads that connected people of all levels of society. Bells & Motley are known for their uncommon instrumentation, and perform on a diverse collection of historic and folk instruments. For this presentation you’ll hear harp, hurdy gurdy, lute, Medieval fiddle, recorders, crumhorns, various French & English bagpipes, and more. The hurdy gurdy, built by Mr. Bromka, is a sort of Medieval keyboard fiddle enhanced with a resonant drone. Join Sondra & John in their Allegorical musical Garden, rich & resounding for all senses.
