Welcome Park is opening a new visitor center and Bunny and his friends want to get in on the act. They approach Park Ranger Ned with the idea that they could teach visitors about the seasons. Ned is worried because each has a bad habit that could interfere with each one doing their best work: Bunny rushes through things; Dog gets herself so nervous she can barely speak; Bee tries to do too many things at once. What will Ned and the audience decide about their readiness to work in the new visitor center? This crowd pleasing show is for ages 3 through 8.

Hawkins, Jim Irish Stories and Songs Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
A program of Irish Stories and Songs taken from a variety of themes in Irish history, folklore, culture and tradition. Most of the stories and songs are humorous, though serious pieces in relation to the above themes can be performed. The program is crafted towards adults, but I have found that children of all ages have enjoyed the stories and songs. Some of the stories ("God and the Devil Dividing the People") are personal and others such as "The White Doe," "The Boy who Had No Story" and "Robert Emmet's 'Speech from the Dock'" are taken from Irish folklore and history. I also include the stories of Eamon Kelly in my performances. In the course of the performance, I discuss aspects of Irish history, cultiure and tradition and encourage the audience to speak of their own Irish roots.

Handy, Spook Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.
