Kids' Korner
Here's some music for the wee nipperkins! Just fun and silly enough, toe-tapping and yes, even gross enough for the kids to sit for 30 to 45 minutes! (Hey, that's something in this day and age!) Songs like "Apples and Bananas", "Baby Bumblebee", "The Ballad of Captain Hook", "Puff the Magic Dragon", "Great Green Gobs" and even some fun rounds to try!

Merry Mischief and the Marionettes
What do you get when you cross Dawn Jordan and her String Theatre with Merlyn and Harry? Puppets that dance to live music - with strings attached!

Piratical Treasures Trinkets
Same as above, but with wee nipperkins in mind... we'll also throw on board some clean pirate jokes (we scoured the sea maties, and indeed did capture a few!) and we'll add a tale of a sea monster or two! Plus some fun history of the infamous Blackbeard and mayhaps, the famous piratess, Ann Bonney. Silliness guaranteed to make history fun! Great for libraries summer reading programs this year, themed birthday parties and anything else you seadogs may think of.

Pub Tavern Show
