Please join us for a magical afternoon of crankies and ballads by Brendan Taaffe!

Sunday, December 17th at 2 pm at The Orchard School & Community Center
This show is for families of all ages! 

Donation at the door $8.00 for adults, $15.00 for families

 

Crankies are scrolling illustrations, hand-cranked in a wooden frame so that the image moves across a viewing screen. They are magic.

 

Originally called 'moving panoramas' in the 19th century, this old art form is making a bit of a comeback now.

 

Brendan uses cut paper art that evokes the beauty of shadow puppetry to bring songs and stories to life.
