Raconteur Radio presents The Wizard of Oz
Celebrate the 80th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz! The classic and memorable film was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars in 1939, but lost to Gone with the Wind. Still, the timeless story, characters, and songs live on, and Raconteur Radio gives it a vibrant twist. This live radio drama is complete with period costumes, theatrical lighting, vintage commercials, Golden Age radio equipment, fog effects, and extensive sound effects.
Raconteur Radio stages theatrical presentations of vintage radio plays, classic works of literature/film, and pop culture parodies for live audiences at traditional and improvised venues throughout the Tri-State area. They've been called 'family friendly guerrilla theater' by the New York Times, and one of 'the 7 best things to do in NJ' by the Newark Star-Ledger.
Part sketchbook, diary, to-do list and dream journal, an art journal is a reflective, multipurpose space and itself a work of art. Join artist Shari Seltzer as she demonstrates many mixed media techniques and suggests prompts to help you translate your ideas into visual form. Learn the process of layering images to create one-of-a-kind art journal pages using collage, paint, stencils or rubber stamps. For this two-part program, art making experience is not necessary, and you will be encouraged to tame your inner critic and experiment in a playful way. Willingness to come along for the ride with an open mind is essential!
