Click here to see what is going on in Florence this week for the kids.

Performing Arts Center Family Series

September 23rd and 24th - Garry Krinsky: Toying With Science


November 29, 2011 - 6:30pm
San Jose Taiko has mesmerized audiences and critics alike with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of taiko, the Japanese drum.  Inspired by traditional Japanese drumming, company performers express the beauty and harmony of the human spirit through the voice of the taiko as they strive to create new dimensions in music and movement.

San Jose Taiko was founded in 1973 by young Asian Americans searching for an outlet to convey their experiences as sansei, or third-generation Japanese Americans. Looking to Japan for inspiration, they were drawn to the empowering sounds of the taiko, the Japanese drum, an instrument that embodies the spiritual essence and heartbeat of Japan.  
Suitable for all ages

January 31, 2012 - 6:30pm
Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, a stirring drama with music is a classic tribute to the great American who freed herself and hundreds of her people from the bonds of slavery.

Llama Llama Red Pajama storytime

Llama Llama book by Anna Dewdney. In this infectious rhyming read-aloud, Baby Llama turns bedtime into an all-out llama drama! Tucked into bed by his mama, Baby Llama immediately starts worrying when she goes downstairs, and his soft whimpers turn to hollers when she doesn't come right back. But just in time, Mama returns to set things right. Children will relate to Baby Llama's need for comfort, as much as parents will appreciate Mama Llama's reassuring message.

Ages:  Preschool through Kindergarten (book recommendation)

Garry Krinsky presents Toying with Science


Garry Krinsky will use his circus skills, mime and audience involvement to bring scientific principles to life in Toying with Science at Francis Marion University’s Performing Arts Center.

In addition to the Family Series there are also four other series in the season that include Broadway shows, concerts, dance and a variety series as well as a wide range of acts in the Black Box Theatre.

Toying with Science is a fast-paced varied and dynamic program combining circus skills, daring feats of balance, mime, original music and audience involvement to explore gravity, leverage, fulcrums and simple machines.  Krinsky involves the audience in investigating these basic scientific principles.  His science toys come to life with motion, music, humor and insight as he turns his audience members into stars.

Mornings at the Museum

My Many Colored Days by: Doctor Seuss
Here is a completely new and different kind of book by Dr. Seuss! Using a spectrum of colors, a menagerie of animals and his familiar bouncing rhyme, Dr. Seuss wrote this book about feelings and moods in 1973. This book provides a way for parents and caregivers to talk to children about emotions through the colorful large-scale paintings jumping off the pages. This rare and beautiful book is bound to appeal to both the young and young at heart.


The Florence Museum is pleased to offer Mornings at the Museum, an interactive story time for children ages birth to four.  These half hour sessions will take place the second Monday of each month.  Mornings at the Museum will begin at 10:00 AM with each session to include a story, hands-on activity and exploration of objects directly relating to the museums permanent collection.  This has been designed to engage young learners and foster a life long love and awareness of art, science and history.

Store Closing

As I read about another notice of a store closing (Books-A-Million) this time it makes me so sad.  I have no idea if they are closing because of their lack of business here in Florence or just their company in general decided to close it.

I just wanted to remind everyone to PLEASE support your local businesses that you like. I know a lot of people are having money problems out there and can't buy what they used to but please try to support "your stores" as much as you can or they won't be there anymore.  You don't want to live in a town with nothing to do.  (Sorry I still haven't recovered from Katie Mac closing!!)

If you are a local business out there with kid events/sales going on please let me know and I'll help you out with free advertising as much as I can.

Now on a lighter note - I'm going to have a contest soon for a fun Halloween item.  Coming soon so keep your eyes open....

Storytime-Froggy Eats Out

Froggy Eats Out by Jonathan London.  It's a special occasion, so Froggy and his parents are going to eat dinner in a fancy restaurant. When they arrive at the restaurant, Froggy's mom has a few rules for him: "Be neat, be quiet, and don't put your feet on the table." But it's so hard for Froggy to sit still. He fidgets, he squirms, and he sssllluuuurrrrpppps his spaghetti. Then he spots Frogilina across the restaurant-now it's impossible for Froggy to follow the rules!

LIVE @ Central!

Wednesday, September 7th, LIVE@CENTRAL! will open its seventh season with a double header event. At 6:00 PM we will have a "Fly Ball" demonstration in the Davis Christian Life Center after the evening meal. Fly Ball is a "head to head" fun event where two teams of four dogs each compete to see which team can go down and return the four balls to the finish line the quickest. This is great fun to watch, but for the dogs (and their owners), this is serious business. Immediately following, at 6:30, Centrals own Johnny and Sharon Tanner and Melanie McMillan will warm up their strings and voices with some fun "picking and grinning". Johnny's song, "WAKE UP JOHN" is the 2011 winner of the Gospel category in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest sponsored by Merle Fest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. He will be sharing with us that experience and the story behind "'WAKE UP JOHN".

The normal time for the variety of programs offered each Wednesday night, fall thru spring, by LIVE@CENTRAL! Is 6:15 to 7:30 PM. For more information, contact program coordinator Murray Jordan at 229-0379 or Linda Segars at 662-3218. Please bring your friends and your free coffee from COFFEE CENTRAL! our free hospitality beverage bar and join us. All LIVE@CENTRAL! programs are free of charge, and the public is invited. A nursery and children's activities are provided. Look for an equally exciting variety of free LIVE@CENTRAL! programs thru out the Fall of 2011 at Central United Methodist Church at the corner of South Irby and West Cheves Street in downtown Florence.
