New Castle County
It’s Berlin between the world wars, and the emcee assures the audience that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the exciting and vital Kit Kat Klub. But troubles abound as creativity, possibility, and budding romance is swallowed by fear and hate. This diversely cast Cabaret directed by Dominic Santos with music directed by Caty Butler takes a modern view of the themes in this classic. Wilmington Drama League, Wilmington.
This performance will get preschoolers singing, exploring rhythm, helping to tell a story, and moving to guitar songs. Mixed in with familiar favorites like “Old MacDonald” and Shel Silverstein’s “Unicorn” are some originals like: “I Have to Have 10”, a counting song; “Colors, Colors”, where kids show how many they can guess from the clues. Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library, Odessa.
This program will go beyond census and vital records to show how to transcend the brick walls of African American research. Records created by the federal and county governments, organizations, employers and insurance companies will be examined. Other collections that will be discussed include mortgage records, Freedmen’s Bureau, Underground Railroad, and fire insurance maps. Delaware Public Archives, Dover.
Friends of Folk is a non-profit organization devoted to the promotion and preservation of folk music in Delaware. This concert series is made possible by a grant from the Kent County Fund for the Arts. The Old State House, Dover.
