Today’s scholars and researchers say creativity is the top skill our kids will need when they enter the work force of the future. We couldn’t agree more, and we salute YOU for valuing the educational and inspirational power of live performance.

We would like to extend an invitation to you and your students to attend some of the wonderful performances scheduled for the coming school year. There is nothing quite like the performing arts to stir the imagination and elicit critical thinking skills in students.

Hobey Ford Golden Rod Puppets - Sea SongHobey Ford's Golden Rod Puppets
Present Sea Song

Thursday, January 25, 2018 -
9:45am and 11:15am
Scherr Forum Theatre, Thousand Oaks
Grades K-5 - -


Sea song is the story of a boy discovering nature for the first time through a fascination with the life cycle of the sea turtle.  When a city boy comes to spend his summer at the coast he is suddenly cut off from his digital world and turns his attention to the natural world of a remote coastal beach. Hobey tells the story without words, performing his own hand crafted foam puppets in full view of the audience to the enchanting hang drum music of David Kuckhermann. Following in the style of his classic production Animalia, Sea Song will inspire and delight the audience with the story of the animals that live in the environment where the land meets the sea, where sea turtles, herons, gulls and terns all come to life in the hands of master puppeteer Hobey Ford.

"Cows that type? Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing!" Farmer Brown cries. When his granddaughter Jenny comes for a visit, Farmer Brown declared the farm a "tech-free zone." He confiscates her laptop in the cold barn along with the shivering cows who use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. "No way," replies Farmer Brown. "No blankets!" So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals' demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

One hour in length, Curriculum Connections: Communication and Language Arts, Literature-Based, Music, Social Studies.
