Chip's Cabin Fever Concert can be just the thing to get us through to spring. It's a wonderful community outreach event that will entertain, inspire, educate and just be plain fun.

Music, particularly folk music with its emphasis on lyrics and stories, can help enhance reading, writing and listening skills, and language development. Using a variety of songs and instruments, and her collection of 'Books That Sing', Nan's presentations are fun and informative and encourage audience participation. Complementing the 2018 NYS Summer Reading Program theme of LIBRARIES ROCK!, her programs this year will invite participants to discover music in many places and forms.

Stoll, Brian At the Barricades ~ Theatre Fans and the Stage Door Experience History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
I will talk about the role theatre fans like myself have played in the theatre community over the centuries. I will share why die-hard theatre fans become repeat attenders and may see a production more than 900 times! In addition, I will inform patrons about the stage door experience which I briefly touched upon at the end of my last program, but was not able to go into detail. I consider stage-dooring to be the icing on the cake after attending a Broadway production. Stage-dooring is when theatre fans rush to the theater's stage door after a performance in hopes of meeting cast members and complimenting them on their performances. Many fans also try to obtain selfies with the stars and have their playbills autographed as keepsakes. In addition to sharing my own knowledge and experiences at many stage doors on Broadway I will include views and experiences from both sides of the barricade.
