Dads and longtime musicians Chuck Folds, Steve Willard, and Eddie Walker are a high-energy, power-pop band—Big Bang Boom—whose mix of alternative, hip-hop, country, pop, and other genres makes it hard for both kids and grownups to stay in their seats. Youngsters can take the stage for the Sponge Bob Chorus and take on their parents in the Hokey Pokey Challenge. Appropriate for all ages.
Some are born to be heroic, and others just bumble into it. Jay and Leslie explore feats of skill, feats of daring, and feats of dumb luck! Highlights include plenty of juggling, a touch of magic, and the adventures of library hero, Dewey ecimal.
Sometimes problems seem too big or overwhelming for one individual to make a difference. Little Nigel the beaver is learning the work of the big beavers when disaster strikes in the form of a forest fire. All the creatures of the forest run away or stand panic stricken waiting for someone else to solve the problem. Only the little hummingbird dares to help. This local rendition of the African tale is an homage to Wangari Maathai, who studied environmentalism in Kansas before returning to Kenya.
