For Librarians and Friends Groups

We really want to work with you in 2017! We are discounting and bending over backwards to work with your scheduling and budgeting parameters. Please give us a call and let us work with you to bring a Traveling Lantern performance to your young readers this summer.

For the 2017 theme "Build a Better World™", we will present:

Summer 2017

The Ribbles Build a Residence

The ABC's Architecture, Building and Construction

Soon after their lovely insect nuptials Mr. and Mrs. Ribble are expecting a baby Ribblet, and they need a new home for their family! Mr. Ribble wants to go big with a four grasshopper garage, but Mrs. Ribble convinces him to build a dream home that is more environmentally and neighborhood friendly.
By playing interactive games and discovering basic building techniques the audience will help draw a ground plan while Thia Tweet the bird architect and Gerry the Ant Contractor from Brooklyn assist the Ribbles in building a new home for a better world!

Next year, for the 2018 Music theme, we will present:

The Life of Mozart

   A special kind of storytelling... history brought to life!

 A frolicsome, gleeful and historically accurate play about
                  one of the greatest geniuses who ever lived.

                      From start to finish this show is accompanied
                    by Mozart's breathtaking music. This play is
                   especially designed to introduce young children
                  to the vibrancy of history, the joy of music, and
                 the true story of this very special composer's life.
(This show is available in both English and Spanish.)

Tales of the Scary Librarian

"...professional, prompt, great with the kids and adults and very, very reasonable. I highly recommend them to you.

Susan Schmidt, Previous FOLUSA President

“A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead.”

--Caitlin Moran
