April Vacation Daze
Classical music has never been performed like this! Working at break-neck speed, the three multi-talented performers of The Fourth Wall combine music, theatre, and dance in this sprint-triathlon variety show. The audience chooses the show order by picking cards from a deck and even determines parameters for some pieces created on the spot. Every performance is unique! As the onstage timer ticks down, The Fourth Wall will blow your mind with tricks, bust your gut with laughter, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye with beautiful music.
Wearing his trade-mark jumbo-sized glasses, Silly Billy combines great magic with lots of comedy. Get silly with Silly Billy! “A zany magician who lives up to his name.” Best Children’s Entertainer in New York” – NY Times
Catskill Puppets – Willow Girl April 19 – 10:am, and 1:pm
When a young Chinese girl immigrates to the American frontier, she finds herself facing discrimination in a swirl of other immigrants and cultures. But she possesses special gifts. She has been taught the healing power of plants and has a secret friend…the mysterious spirit who inhabits a beautiful Willow Tree!
When the Willow Girl meets two Irish brothers, one generous and good, the other selfish and unkind, they all discover that the magic of The Willow works two ways. This rod puppet show features a huge, gracefully animated Willow Tree and is a wonderful blend of humor, mystery, drama and magical effects. It is illustrated with original and traditional fiddle music.
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.
Bert the Nerd – Juggler Extraordinaire — April 21 – 10:am, and 1:pm
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.
