The Library Boogie

Mayor Bianchi and the Berkshire Athenaeum are pleased to announce a special performance!

Please join us for a Summer Reading 2014 Special Performance: Tom Knight presents “The Library Boogie”. This performance takes place in the Auditorium of the Berkshire Athenaeum on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 1:00 PM. 

Tom Knight has been writing and performing for kids since 1988. Formerly based in Ithaca, New York, he now makes his home in the Northampton area of Western Massachusetts. Tom brings his portable stage and hand-made puppets to schools, libraries, theaters and festivals throughout the Northeast.

Tom Knight Puppets is a vibrant collection of original songs and skits, each 3-5 minutes long, with enough variety to keep even the very youngest children waiting to see what will happen next.

While Tom sings to pre-recorded music tracks, puppets like Henry the Magician, the Little Elephant, and Allie the Alligator act out the stories of the songs. Besides the visual appeal, almost every segment has a part for the audience, including hand motions, singing along, or doing simple dance steps.

This 45 minute family event is free.  Ages 5-92 No registration is required but children under 10 must be accompanied at all times by an adult over 18 years of age. This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum.
