Graham, Michael Michael Graham's Spring Valley Puppet Theater Multicultural- Other,
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. Recommended for ages 5 and up / K thru 6th grade. Prices range from $335 to $400 plus travel. Please call for pricing information.

Rosenfeld, Jordan Jewish Communities of Europe: Then and Now History,
Multicultural- Other,
Museums
This offering is based on personal experiences of the presenter as well as scholarship about historical, communal and cultural aspects of Jewish life in contemporary Europe. This “virtual tour” is filled with information about the past and present experiences of Jews spanning the continent, from Barcelona to Helsinki. It will include communities, both large and small, that are vibrant today, as well as communities which are mere shadows of their former glory. Perhaps members of your group will draw some new conclusions about places like Switzerland and Sweden, countries with small Jewish populations which have vacillated between being havens for Jews to being hostile to Jews. Everyone will learn something new about individual Jews from Amsterdam and Prague who had wealth and power even at a time in history when Jews were denied full civil rights, and about how Jews banded together to erect magnificent places of worship over the centuries in Venice and Budapest that can still be visited today, and which in many cases are still used for prayer on a regular basis.
