Library Boogie with Tom Knight

Tom Knight is back again with his vibrant collection of original songs and skits that will keep even the very youngest children waiting to see what happens next.  Who knows? with puppets like Henry the Magician, the Little Elephant, Andy the Recycling Guy, and Allie the Alligator acting out the stories. 

Tom Knight is a great children’s songwriter. His shows are filled with short puppet vignettes, lots of songs and audience participation. Tom’s favorite themes are animals, food, the environment, and the importance of reading. With catchy melodies and clever lyrics, Tom Knight’s songs are easy to remember and fun to sing and most have a part for the audience, whether it is hand movements, dancing to the ‘Alligator Jump’ or just singing along.

It’s a show that’s fun for kids, but savvy enough to appeal to grown-ups, too.

Carnaval Del Mundo, by Dan Butterworth

Welcome to the Carnival of the WorldEnter Into A Feast For Your Eyes and Imagination
Step Right Up… Step Right Up… Step Right Up…


There are few events which can equally capture the attention of both adults and children. Carnaval del Mundo is riveting from the first bright peel of the heralds’ trumpets to the sweetly comical romp of puppies who tumble out into the audience at the end.
