Grudko, Marian Beatrix Potter’s “The Tailor of Gloucester” Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Beatrix Potter’s “The Tailor of Gloucester” a magical tale read by Marian Grudko One day near Christmas time, an elderly tailor 
began to make a coat -- of cherry colored corded silk
-- for the Mayor of Gloucester. In the bitter cold, the tailor became ill, 
and unable to finish the coat. Yet it WAS finished. But by whom? This classic Christmas story is said to have been 
Beatrix Potter’s personal favorite. Marian’s reading has become a new holiday tradition!

Henry the Juggler (AKA Henry Lappen) is wanted! He is wanted by audiences everywhere for his zany attempts to defy the laws of gravity. He juggles any number of balls, clubs, rings, members of the audience . . . He balances strange items on the tip of his nose. Everything is accomplished wordlessly as Henry uses body language and gesture (and road signs!) to express himself. Caution: Henry is known to use innocent bystanders in his act. Henry the Juggler is a professional. He has been seen by tens of thousands up and down the East Coast - at theaters, schools, libraries and festivals. He has been performing for over thirty years. He studied physical comedy at California's Dell'Arte School and continues to expand his abilities through classes in yoga and tango. He is an active member of the International Jugglers' Association. A workshop follows each show, where Henry teaches some of the skills he has presented.

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.
