On Stage @THELMA: Giants in the Sky

9:00 am
$175 ($140 for THELMA Members)
51 Sheboygan Street, Fond du Lac, WI

THELMA’s arts day camp – On Stage @ THELMA will feature the theatrical adventure , “Giants in the Sky.” This magical story explores the world of Giants who live above the clouds. Ever since they left Earth a long time ago, the Giants have made a life up above where their job is to keep the sky beautiful. They polish the stars, poke the clouds to let it rain and paint the sunsets. But there is one curious Giant who wonders what life is like on Earth, so she steals a key to the locked up “beanstalk” and embarks on an adventure down below!

Fourth through eighth grade students will learn the lines, the music, the dances, and build the sets in this two week adventure. Then on the final day, students perform it twice!

Copper Box

7:00 pm
Free
Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts

Don’t miss this THELMA favorite!

Copper Box was nominated for 2018 Folk/Celtic Artist of the year.

Danny Jerabek (accordion, keys, percussion, vocals, cornet, sousaphone, etc.) and his wife, Michelle (Thull) Jerabek (bari saxophone, vocals, guitar, percussion, etc.) both are nominated for 2018 Reeds/Brass Award. Both started performing with their family on stage at an early age. Once in their teens, they crossed paths again and eventually realized they were meant to be together. They started writing songs and formed a band and the rest is history!
The current line up includes the highly regarded talents of Dan Cable (drums, percussion) and Dave Chyla (bass, guitar).
Danny Jerabek was given an accordion from his grandfather at age 9 and taught himself how to play it. Inspired by Steve (Esteban) Jordan, “the Jimi Hendrix of Tejano Accordion,” he began to “rock out” and improvise –thinking a little more, “outside the box.” He has been featured at the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio, TX, and the National Accordion Festival in Houston, TX, and the Cotati Accordion Festival in Cotati, CA, and has been featured on national TV. In 2015, Danny accepted an Artist Endorsement deal with Hohner Accordions, INC.
