Shakespeare for the Common Core (Recommended K-8th grade) We meet the Bard as he is working on his plays “Romeo and Juliet”, “Julius Caesar”, and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” is the central play of this production. It is a timeless story about two young teens who find love despite the prejudice and hatred of their families. Shakespeare’s words come alive with imagination, swordplay, and romance. Through this production, we hope to introduce the students to more of Shakespeare’s works while encouraging them to overcome prejudices in their own lives.

Perry, James Explorer Magic Performing Arts- Magic
Are you looking for a fun program for your library? Magic is always popular, but how about magic with a little something more. We have just the thing! We take one-part humor, one-part audience participation, and one-part magic to create laughs, wonders and illusions customized for your patrons! The laughs are built into the magic. For example, the magic appears to go wrong, and Jim finds himself entangled in the microphone stand, but as he works through the problem to a fantastic magic result. Volunteers are used throughout the show. We never embarrass them; instead, each one is sent back to their seat a hero. Our show uses ordinary objects--like playing cards, eggs, rope, balloons and more--from around the home to create extraordinary illusions. Things vanish and appear. The laws of physics are rewritten. We infuse the show with humor that draws on Jim's years of experience as a comic magician inspired by physical (clown-like) humor. After the finale, we provide magic and/or juggling tutorials so the fun can continue after the show is over.

You’ll be invited to waltz with imaginary bears, and sing along to songs of animals. Hear the “Fox and the Crow” with participatory song refrain.
