THIS IS ACTUALLY THE WORK OF CATAPULTS SHADOW DANCE COMPANY AND WHAT YOU JUST SAW IS ONLY A FRACTION OF WHAT THIS GROUP CAN DO COMBINING DANCE WITH SILHOUETTES BUT YOU CAN SEE IT MUCH MORE NEXT MONTH IN OCEAN CITY. WE’RE BACK WITH THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE ART LEAGUE OF OCEAN CITY RENA THALER. WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING TONIGHT. THAT WAS IT RISES SAYS AND THAT’S ONLY A LITTLE PORTION OF WHAT PEOPLE WILL SEE IF THEY COME OUT TO CATAPULT NOW BEFORE WE GET TO THE CATAPULT SHOW THE ART LEAGUE IS HOSTING THE 15TH ANNUAL SANDCASTLE HOME TO OUR NEXT WHAT IS UP FOR THE HOME TOUR IS HOW WE ACTUALLY GOT THE ARTS CENTER TO BE ABLE TO BE BUILT IN OCEAN CITY. AND IT’S A SELF GUIDED TOUR OF 10 HOMES IN THE CITY AREA. PEOPLE HAVE TWO DAYS TO EXPLORE THE HOME. THEY GET A TOUR BOOK AND GO IN THEIR OWN PACE HAS A MAP AND DIRECTIONS TO EACH HOUSE AND DESCRIPTION AND WHEN THEY GET TO THE HOMES THEY’LL BE DOCENTS AT EACH HOME TO GREET THEM. IT’S JUST A REALLY FUN DAY. NO WAY TO SPEND THE DAY A LOT OF PEOPLE GO AND HAVE LUNCH AND ENJOY THE DAY AS THEY GO THROUGH THE HOMES. AND A GREAT WAY TO GET DECORATING IDEAS AND SEE YOU KNOW ARCHITECTS BUILDERS AND KITCHEN PEOPLE CAN DO TO TRANSFORM PEOPLE’S HOUSES. CAN YOU GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE WOULD SEE ON THE TOUR. WELL WE TRY TO DO A VARIETY OF HOMES. SO WE HAVE ONE THAT’S LIKE A LITTLE BEACH COTTAGE WE HAVE A BACHELOR PAD. WE HAVE A FAMILY HOUSE. WE HAVE A BIG MCMANN CHIN AND WE CALL IT HOME. SO JUST SEE WHAT LIFE IS LIKE. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T LIKE DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE IN THE OCEAN CITY AREA YOU KNOW FULL TIME AND OR EVEN AS A VACATION HOME IN SO IT OPENS THE DOORS TO PEOPLE AND BRINGING PEOPLE UNDER THE ROOF AND THAT’S HOW WE’RE ABLE TO HOW ROOF AT THE ART CENTER IS BY PEOPLE TAKING THE TOUR AND SUPPORTING THE TOUR. SO MEL PROCEEDS FROM THIS GO TO THE ART LEAGUE OF OCEAN CITIES PROGRAMS AND THINGS. YEAH. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT SOME OF THE PROGRAMS SO IF THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN TO THE ART CENTER THE OCEAN CITY CENTER THE ARTS AND 94 STREET IS OUR BEAUTIFUL HOME FOR THE ART LEAGUE AND THERE WE HAVE CLASSES EVENTS LAST LAST YEAR WE HAD OVER 3000 PEOPLE REGISTERED FOR CLASSES WE DO ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT EVENTS LIKE OUR FILM FESTIVAL AND OTHERS. LOTS AND LOTS OF EXHIBIT OF ARTWORK OF ADULTS KIDS PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS EMERGING ARTISTS PROGRAMS LECTURES AND ART CENTERS OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK IT’S FREE TO ENTER JUST A GREAT PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO COME TOGETHER AND EXPERIENCE JOY OF ART.

BOTH DAYS TICKETS ARE 30 DOLLARS AND YOU CAN GET THEM ON OUR WEB SITE OR BY CALLING THE ART LEAGUE AND NO MAKING RESERVATIONS. ALL RIGHT SO WE KIND OF TEASED AHEAD GAVE HER A LITTLE TAZ A LITTLE A LITTLE TASTE OF CATAPULT IT’S A CATAPULT DANCE COMPANY TELL US EXACTLY WHAT IT IS SO IN ADDITION TO DOING PROGRAMMING AT THE OUTSET AND WE WANT TO BRING ART THROUGHOUT THE TOWN AND SO WE’RE NOT ONLY VISUAL ARTS WE’RE PERFORMING ARTS AS WELL. AND CATAPULT WAS A SENSATION THAT WAS ON FEATURE FIRST ON AMERICA’S GOT TALENT AND THEY WERE IT WENT TO THE FINALS THEY JUST WOWED THE CRITICS AND AUDIENCES. IT’S STORYTELLING THROUGH DANCE AND ALMOST LIKE SCULPTURE USING SILHOUETTES THAT TRANSFORM AND MORPH INTO DIFFERENT SHAPES AND IT REALLY KEEPS YOU AT THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT. THAT’S LIKE FAST PACED MUSIC AND IT TAKES YOU THROUGH EACH SCENE IS LIKE A DIFFERENT VIGNETTE. SO THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR THAT A SHOW LIKE THIS HAS BEEN BROUGHT. YES. LAST YEAR WE BROUGHT OUTRAGEOUS AND IT WAS A GREAT SUCCESSIVE ANYBODY THAT WAS THERE LOVED IT WANTED MORE. YOU WHERE THAT WASN’T THERE IF THEY LIKED RAY JUST A LOVE CATAPULT AND THE BEAUTY OF IT IS WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A PUBLIC PERFORMANCE OCTOBER 6TH SUNDAY NIGHT AND WE’LL HAVE A SCHOOL PERFORMANCE THAT’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE AREA KIDS TWELVE HUNDRED CHILDREN BE ABLE TO SEE A SCHOOL MATINEE VERSION OF IT AND IT’S FREE FOR THAT. AND IT WILL BE FREE FOR THEM. SO THE TICKETS THE TICKETS THAT ARE SOLD FOR THE ADULT PERFORMANCES PLUS SUPPORT FROM THE HUMPHRIES FOUNDATION THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION TEAM PRODUCTIONS IN THE TOWN OF OCEAN CITY WILL HELP SUPPORT THIS IS IMPORTANT ISN’T IT TO HAVE KIDS EXPOSE TO THE ARTS LIKE THIS. IT IS SO IMPORTANT AT A YOUNG AGE FOR KIDS TO HAVE THAT EXPOSURE TO ART IT JUST LIFTS THEIR SELF-ESTEEM IT ALLOWS THEM TO SEE CREATIVE PROBLEMS SOLVING AND GAIN SKILLS LIKE THAT AND IT JUST MAKES THEM BETTER ADULTS. SO I COULDN’T IMAGINE TRAINING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. STANDING BEHIND TRYING TO CREATE A SILHOUETTE AND YOU’RE PROBABLY DOING THESE WACKY WEIRD THINGS LIKE BEHIND A YOU KNOW SHADOW YOU DO JUST SHADOWS AND STUFF BUT IT LOOKS REALLY NEAT ON THE OTHER SIDE YEAH. LET’S GO OVER THE EVENT DETAILS LIKE YOU SAID IT’S SUNDAY OCTOBER 6TH 6:00 P.M. AT THE OCEAN CITY PERFORMING ARTS CENTER NUDE AND AS A FAMILY FRIENDLY SHOW WE’RE HOLDING IT AT 6:00 SO THAT WE INVITE FAMILIES WE KNOW IT IT’S A SUNDAY NIGHT AND I THINK PEOPLE OF ALL AGES WILL LOVE IT.
