D (Dan) and J (Jason) take popular children’s stories and use audience input to change the stories around in a fun and original way. What if Curious George was a hippopotamus? What would happen if Goldilocks met three crocodiles? What if Corduory was missing a purple crayon and Harold had the magic button? Using improvisation, no two shows are alike! Audience members will be brought into the action as Dan and Jason use props and silly costumes to make their stories come to life and share their own love of reading."

Caryn Lin, the electric violinist, presents Bach 2 Rock!

This program presents the simplicity of the solo acoustic violin and its origins demonstrated by performing a simple Bach minuet. Whisked into present day, Caryn uses the five string electric violin and sound effects to transcend that "solo" sound by doing what is called "looping" creating sound loops live that she adds to and embellishes, playing in essence, live duos and trios with herself. This 3 dimensional sound magic is performed right before your eyes!! Plus, with the addition of her sound technician demonstrating and looping electronic drums and guitar... all performed through a full professional sound system. Audiences of ALL ages are captivated. Students are always included and anxious to participate on stage.

Program lasts approximately 45 minutes. Grades K-12

This show will be held at The Twentieth Century Club located 84 S Lansdowne Ave, Lansdowne, PA 19050

All ages welcome, large groups PLEASE call 610-623-0239 ext 304 or e-mail lacsd@delcolibraries.org to register.

 

This program was made possible through a generous grant from the Lansdowne Allied Youth Council.

In this nontraditional Preschool Story Time, books are read to preschoolers who love to read!  Songs, rhymes, fingerplays, and toys are used to help kids learn and love to read.  At the end of story time the kids are invited to put laminated pieces on a scene board and tell everyone their story that they created.  A great way to encourage imagination, creativity, and story-building!

Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

Join us in the Children's Room for an evening of fun as part of the Summer Reading Club. 

DJs are known for their mixing of music - taking two different songs and making something original. D.J. Mixup does the same thing using books! D (Dan) and J (Jason) take popular children’s stories and use audience input to change the stories around in a fun and original way. What if Curious George was a hippopotamus? What would happen if Goldilocks met three crocodiles? What if Corduory was missing a purple crayon and Harold had the magic button? Using improvisation, no two shows are alike! Audience members will be brought into the action as Dan and Jason use props and silly costumes to make their stories come to life and share their own love of reading.

Join us every Friday at 10:30am this summer for fun family performances!

Suitable for children ages 3-10, but all are welcome.  No registration required. 

Today's Friday Performance:  Sciencetellers present: Potions.  Join us as we learn about the concept of matter, its three states (solid, liquid, and gas), and how to change matter from one state to another. We will discover the secrets of this hidden laboratory, perform narrow escapes, witness surprising discoveries, and reveal an unbelievable ending. Our interactive experiments include screaming quarters, jets of gas to taste, popping potions, incredible showers of smoke-filled bubbles, and buckets of fog! Uncover the mystery of Doolittle while discovering how all of this is created by the two “coolest” things in the world — dry ice and your imagination!

Join us afterwards for a Cookie Sale!  The Friends of Ridley Township Public Library will be selling cookies for $1 following this Friday's performance.

Each high-energy program is performed by a Scienceteller (a combination Scientist and Storyteller) to create a fun, unexpected, and unforgettable experience where science is taught through stories.  It is through this synergy of science and storytelling that Piccirillo Sciencetelling engages the audience, by combining these seemingly different ideas and using the resulting reaction to educate and entertain!
