Holidays Around the World (suggested for grades K-5) "The holidays are a special time for children and families all around the world. In this production, we've scoured the globe for some of the most unique holiday traditions from the winter season; from the Dragon Dance of Chinese New Year to the bright and colorful Junakanoo festival in the Bahamas. We've also included many of the traditions celebrated here in the United States from Christmas to Kwanzaa to the Festival of Lights! In Holidays from Around the World, young audiences will be transported by a magical map to several of the most outstanding holiday destinations. They will even have a chance to participate in celebrations around the globe and make new friends from countries like Russia, India, Sweden, and more! All the while, the most important lessons of the holidays are brought to life; that the true spirit of the holidays lies in giving, sharing, kindness, and spending time with friends and loved ones."

Freedom Songs: The Music of Black History
Presented by special arrangement with Bright Star Touring Theatre
Directed by:
February-25 - February-25, 2017
Freedom Songs (suggested for grades 3-Adult) "The Music of Black History Music has long played such an important role in American culture and history. And yet, perhaps no single population has provided bigger influence on American Music than the African American Community. Bluegrass, Jazz, The Blues, Spirituals--so much of our musical identity as a nation can be traced to this rich heritage. Our desire to educate audiences on this significant part of our history has led us to create this production. This 45-minute production features the talents of two accomplished, professional singers as they trace the highlights of these various musical genres in a kind of timeline revue. We hope that you sit back and enjoy learning about the evolution of music!" Study Guide

Take a Giant Leap
Presented by special arrangement with Rainbow Puppet Productions
Directed by:
June-10 - June-10, 2017
Take a Giant Leap (suggested for grades Pre-K to 4) Since before the dawn of human history, people have looked to the heavens and let their imaginations run free and that's the starting point of the new production "Take a Giant Leap." We look to the sky and imagine we see a lion, a bear, a rabbit, a giant butterfly and soon those imagined creatures come to life... singing original songs and encouraging the audience to join along in dance. As the show progresses, we go from looking into the sky to actually flying in the sky, first in airplanes and then in rocket ships that take us into space. The highlight of the program is a five-foot-tall astronaut landing on the moon and then encouraging us to take a giant leap... perhaps one day to Mars. "Take a Giant Leap" was created for and premiered at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum... working in cooperation with the Department of Education's "Let's Read! Let's Move!" event. The program is the perfect mix of original songs, dance and multiple styles of puppetry including the largest marionette in Rainbow Puppet's history.
