Spencertown Academy: Steve Charney Virtual Reading Program

SteveCharneyandHarry

Spencertown Academy Arts Center presents children’s entertainer, magician, composer, and ventriloquist Steve Charney as part of its virtual Family Arts Kaleidoscope series. Beginning on Thursday, October 1 at 10:00am and available online anytime through Sunday, October 18, “It’s All About Reading” highlights the serious and not-so-serious joys of books and reading and includes Charney’s famous puppet pal, Harry.

“We’re delighted that Steve recorded this program specially for the Academy,” says Kelly Kynion, chair of the Family Arts Kaleidoscope Committee. “And to encourage even more reading, 10 participants will be selected at random to receive a copy of Steve’s book, Hokus Jokus: How to do Funny Magic.

Steve Charney’s comedy act of magic, music, and ventriloquism has taken him from Africa to California, and his radio program “Knock On Wood” aired on various stations around the country for more than 25 years, including WAMC. He wrote dozens of songs for Jim Henson’s “Bear in the Big Blue House” for the Disney Channel, and his books on comedy and magic have been published by Crown, Troll, Metacom, Meadowbrook Press, Scholastic, and Sterling (a division of Barnes and Noble).

The program is sponsored by Spencertown Academy, with generous support from Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation and Stewart’s Shops.

The Family Arts Kaleidoscope virtual series continues on Saturday, October 24 at 10:00am live on Zoom with Greg and Elena Mosley presenting “Style and Rhythms of West African Drumming” (for adults and children age 10 and up).

Family Arts Kaleidoscope is made possible with support from Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation and Stewart’s Shops.
