Graham, Michael A Holiday Fantasy / The Three Wishes Performing Arts- Puppetry
A HOLIDAY FANTASY Enchanted toys, fairy magic and a clever mouse are just some of the surprises in A Holiday Fantasy, an original puppet production by Michael Graham’s Spring Valley Puppet Theater. The story unfolds to the music of Massenet, Glazunov, Lecocq and others! THE THREE WISHES That’s just what happens to Henry and Gretchen in this puppet production of The Three Wishes. This folktale favorite is flavored with a dash of dialogue, a generous helping of humor and the twists of plot for which the Spring Valley Puppet Theater is known. This program is followed by a curtain down question and answer period in schools and a demonstration for public performances.

The Games Man, TREVOR Giants & Giraffes * Dragons & Detectives Other,
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.)

Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Central New York magician Ron Cain takes young readers on an imaginary journey to ancient Greece. His Olymp-Trick Games Magic Show highlights the 2016 summer reading program theme, On Your Mark, Get Set. . . READ! The 45-minute program combines an Olympic-style emphasis on sports with Greek myths and legends. Cain tells the audience he needs help finding the ultimate champion of his Olymp-Trick Games. The contenders are Greek gods, goddesses and heroes. Each must perform a magic trick related to an Olympic event. Children volunteer to play the contestants during the show. Will Heracles (Hercules) best everyone in illusions involving feats of strength? Is Artemis faster at sleight-of-hand than her twin brother, Apollo? Can greedy King Midas magically win the gold in any event? Cain is a former history teacher who recently traveled to Greece to visit Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. The ancient Greeks valued physical fitness and sports, which prompted them to create the Olympic Games more than 2,700 years ago. They also were great thinkers and writers. Cain hopes his show will inspire young people to visit their local library to read about Greek history and mythology.
