Kevin Devine's Musical Circus landed at the Eastwood Branch Library today. Culminating with a parade of tambourine wielding kids, this Make a Splash program was total fun. There were lots of opportunities for audience members to participate when Kevin invited them up to sing or to play the drums or to be the sun shining in the sky. Kalamazoo Public Library was pleased to have this award winning songwriter and entertainer back and will look forward to another great show in mid October at the Oshtemo Branch Library.

Commedia Zuppa presented BOXHEAD, a program featuring masks and much more at the Central Library on Tuesday. What a great program! Before and after the performance, audience members had the opportunity to try on real hand-made theatrical masks created by these theater professionals. Made out of neoprene and each one of a kind, the masks themselves were very cool. The theater program was great fun! Inspired by the classic Where the Wild Things Are and The Phantom Tollbooth, BOXHEAD is a gentle look at what can happen when you get so angry you lose your head.
