    • Didgeridoo Down Under Show: Australian Music, Character Building & More!

      Description:

      G’day! The DDU Show is a unique fusion of Australian music, culture, science, comedy, character building, anti-bullying and audience participation. The didgeridoo has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and super fun for all ages! DDU performer Rob Thomas is a true didgeridoo pioneer in the U.S. He has been making and playing didges for almost 30 years; has performed throughout the country; has recorded several albums; and has produced music for numerous films, including the IMAX movie Sacred Planet. Rob plays a variety of exotic didgeridoos throughout the show. He also uses a multitude of props – including motivational signs, vocabulary lists, maps, globes, artifacts, artwork and puppets – to deliver educational lessons and empowering messages about diversity, kindness, tolerance, and respect. Your students will be fully engaged with world-class educational entertainment!

    • Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf: Unleash Your Inner Author!

      Description:

      Deep in the mystical mountains of western North Carolina, if you listen quietly at night, you might hear the ancient and enthralling sound of … a wolf! Although wolves no longer live in the wild in western NC, children’s author Tanya Gerard and her husband, Rob Thomas, have raised wolves and wolf-dog hybrids as pets for almost 20 years. Their pets – and their love of nature and storytelling – inspired Tanya to write a debut book, The Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf, and soon-to-be-published The Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf 2. Tanya and Rob are now on a mission to motivate children to practice reading and writing, and to unlock their own inner author. In this engaging and fun K-5th program, Tanya and Rob will read and act out passages from her book, complimented by stunning photos and captivating videos of their wild pets. Throughout the program, Tanya and Rob will deliver motivational messages about reading, writing and life. Their messages are simple but important: Read as much as possible. Start by writing about what interests you. Keep writing, even if it’s not perfect. Follow your dreams! Tanya & Rob are a multi-talented duo that has performed at hundreds of schools, libraries and other venues nationwide. They also have recorded several CDs and have produced music for numerous films, including the IMAX movie Sacred Planet. (The video will feature two performers, and the live stream will feature one or two.)
