Sticks and Tones

Here are some programs we've done for the Summer Reading Program in past years, plus a few other programs we've done elsewhere. Sometimes we resurrect a program when a school or seasonal theme creates an interest for it.

The Unhuggable Bugs

Suitable for All Ages, Libraries, and Zoos - Summer 2008

A favorite subject of just about every kid - BUGS! Lots of songs about bugs, with bug facts (ranging from the gross to the fun) sprinkled through out.

Best Pet in the World

Suitable for All Ages, Libraries, and Zoos - Summer 2006

Henry & Maria went trotting the globe to seek the World's Best Pet. The audience members learned through familiar tunes and fun facts about various animals from around the world and then voted for whether or not these animals would make a good pet.

Medieval Mischief

Suitable for All Ages - Summer 2005

A goofy and interactive show that introduces the audience to medieval history, life, and music. Maria magically ends up in Medieval England, where she must solve a riddle. In her search for the answer, she meets several interesting characters and sings many songs with origins from the medieval ages. Students have many opportunities to participate and play instruments during the show.
