Our Theme and Events

We found that the common thread between our sources was a question. The question we ask with our sources is how original is original, and what that means.  We are trying  to define and contemplate the boundaries between something completely unoriginal, a original story, and a lie. Stories have a big impact on our memories, so finding a way to differentiate a lie from an original story  or already existing story is important.

Also here are a few events for this week! (courtesy of the Eric Carle Museum webpage)


In The Auditorium
Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School presents:
Goldilocks & the Three Bears: An Epic
February 19 – February 22, 2013
11:00 am and 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm
$6 (Members $5)
So you think you know this tale? Think again! In this epic adaptation written by Jack Neary, there’s a lot more in store for Goldy, our little blond curiosity seeker, than three bears, some chairs, and bowls of breakfast food. Some annoying neighborhood kids, a pack of crazy Wolfettes, a fourth bear named Uncle Chester who may not be a bear at all, Little Red Riding Hood and even Rapunzel join forces to create an adventure for the ages! Poor Goldy! All she wanted was to take a nice little walk in the forest. Goldilocks & The Three Bears: An Epic is a show for the whole family to enjoy!

Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Museum Admissions Desk or by calling (413) 658-1126.
