Performing Arts- Other
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.)

The Games Man, TREVOR The On-The-Go High-Octane Special Other,
Performing Arts- Other
AN ENERGETIC EVENT FOR ACTIVE PEOPLE Although we won't be running the entire time, this is an active event popular with college students, teens, and older school age children with energy to spare. It's an hour of active, non-sports, everybody-wins, strategy games that challenge you no matter what your skill levels. And, if breathers are needed, we'll sit down for a few Minute Mysteries to challenge their brains while their bodies rest. What kind of games? Try this: it takes team work for everyone to catch the runner in Line Cross, and it certainly is a challenge for one lone individual to hold everyone at bay in Smaug's Jewel. It's 1-on-1 competitive running in Elbow Tag, and everyone working together to get untangled in Knots. Lots of tag games, including Cross Tag, Blob, Rock Paper Scissors Tag, and the incomparable Go Ten. Plus unusual team games like Dho-Dho-Dho, Lemonade, and Elves Giants & Wizards! All in all, it's a solid hour of excitement, a total blast, and a might lot of FUN! Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project.
