Theater Games 2017

Teamwork, self-confidence, storytelling, body awareness, and a sense of adventure are developed as children learn to take to the stage and transform it using their bodies, voices, and imaginations. The workshop concludes with a performance for family and friends.

The Ebony Hillbillies

As one of the last black string bands in the U.S.—currently based in the concrete hills of NYC—the Hillbillies keep an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that many forget was a key element in the genesis of all the music we cherish as uniquely American—jazz, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, rock and roll and country.

Bumper Jacksons

“You may come for the jazz: clarinet and horns and swingy rhythms, plus Billie Holliday and Duke Ellington classics. But you’ll stay for all the other ingredients in their mélange: fiddles and guitars, bouncy banjo-ukes, weepy country pedal steel, rock-and-roll electric guitar, jug-band kazoo and assorted percussion” —Huffington Post.
