Steve Charney and HarryVentriloquist Steve Charney –  April 8 – 10:am and 1:pm    

A one-man vaudeville show. Steve Charney, with his wooden assistant Harry, has performed magic, music, jokes, and other forms of comedy through out the US for several decades.  His songs have become part of the PBS show The Bear in the Big Blue House.  Daniel Pinkwater described Charney as “A scholar of various types of lunacy, and as to his sense of humor, I think it is primitive, juvenile and absolutely perfect.” There is no-one like Steve Charney, you have to see why.

Tangelwood - Dragon KingTanglewood Marionettes – The Dragon King  — April 9 – 10:am and 1:pm

The tale of an intrepid Grandmother who journeys to the bottom of the sea to seek the Dragon King, and the answer to why he has not brought the life-giving rains in such a very long time. An underwater fantasy based on Chinese folklore, this exciting adventure is filled with amazing sea creatures and a Dragon King that will knock your socks off.

Bert will do a 2:30 pm Juggling Workshop ($15 & includes a set of Juggling Balls)

Whether perched atop a unicycle flinging around knives and torches, walking a rope, or simply smashing crackers with a sledgehammer, Bert manages to command the force of gravity but gets mystified by his necktie. Bert’s powerful performance fills the stage with amazing skill in juggling and magic, hard-hitting comedy, audience participation, and a wonderful spontaneity that keeps his audience screaming for more.
