CREC THEATER OF THE PERFORMING ARTS - HARTFORD, CT - NOV. 18
"Warm, gentle humor and well-crafted, quirky wordplay run through Steve Roslonek's creative songs and stories." -- Los Angeles Times
HARTFORD, CT -- Wethersfield, CT resident Steve Roslonek is kids' musician SteveSongs, known and loved by millions of PBS KIDS viewers throughout the country as "Mr. Steve," co-host of the PBS KIDS preschool destination.
SteveSongs will bring his signature brand of seriously good (and seriously fun) music to two rocking family shows benefiting CPTV at 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 18 at the CREC Theater of the Performing Arts, 359 Washington St., Hartford, CT.
All proceeds from these shows -- part of CPTV's 50th Anniversary Celebration -- will directly benefit local programming at CPTV. These performances are presented by The Connecticut Science Center and are sponsored in part by Little Honey's Donuts.
"Mr. Steve" and his band will take kids and families on a magical and musical adventure celebrating the upcoming release of "Orangutan Van," the first new, full-length SteveSongs album in six years.
SteveSongs shows are fantastic, fun-filled, kid-pleasing extravaganzas, packed with great melodies, clever stories, and plenty of audience participation. Many of Steve's songs are wildly interactive. Fans can expect to take part in the hilarious call-and-response for "Grumpy Boy," join a super-silly game played to the accompaniment of the song "Brush Brush Brush," and work out with some aerobically challenging dance moves to one of Steve's most requested songs, "Recess Rocks."
Since May 2008, Steve Roslonek, as "Mr. Steve," has co-hosted the PBS KIDS preschool destination that features the popular shows Curious George, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, Super Why! and Martha Speaks. Steve regularly makes appearances nationwide at PBS station events, and, along with other notable PBS KIDS characters, such as Hooper, he is a featured visitor at libraries across the country, encouraging kids to read through the JetBlue and PBS KIDS collaborative "Soar with Reading" program.
