festival on the common

The holiday season is upon us! If you're looking for a great way to celebrate, then come on down to the Woburn Commons on Saturday, November 24 from 3-7pm for the 18th Annual Festival on the Commons!

This free event will include fun family activities such as face painting, singing hayrides, a petting zoo and more! Be sure to stop on by and visit the Woburn Fire Department's Smoke Safety House, see the ice sculpting demonstrations, or have a bite to eat from one of the many food vendors.

You will be entertained throughout the evening with live musical performances of holiday music. The children can meet Santa and tell him their wish lists, and everyone will enjoy the lighting of the Commons!

Davis Bates and Roger Tincknell

Parents’ Choice Award winning performers Davis Bates and Roger Tincknell will perform “Imagine That: Celebrating Reading in Story and Song.” The program will involve the audience in a variety of cultural traditions. 

Hear how stars came to be in the sky, how the bear missed the rain, sing a dancing wooden dog to sleep, and be prepared to sing, move and dance.  The songs and stories are accompanied by the Aztec rain stick, Inca flute, Russian balalaika, African drum, as well as guitar, mandolin, and the North American banjo.  There will even be a short lesson in how to play the spoons.

The performance will take place at the Woburn Public Library on Thursday, July 19, 2012 starting at 10:30 am.   Be sure to be on time—you won’t want to miss this wonderful family oriented entertainment event.  This performance is funded by a grant from the Woburn Cultural Council.

Woburn Public Library

Kidstock! Creative Theater Education Center will bring their audience interactive show MAX & SUZY to The Woburn Public Library Study Hall on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at 2:30 p.m.  This show is appropriate for ages 3 and up.

Max & Suzy are best friends who love theater, and they celebrate the summer with a show that combines a favorite book each of them insists must become a play.  Their comical conflict always results in a creative compromise as these two young playwrights learn to “play right” and involve the audience as additional cast members in the drama-filled fun of their staged “mergers.”

In The Velveteen Robot, Suzy replaces the familiar favorite stuffed animal with an old fashioned mechanical toy who, much to Max’s chagrin, is convinced by the other toys in the toy box to abandon him.  Not until his stuffed toys begin to come to life does Max appreciate the Robot Toy for the value it truly holds.
