Nationally recognized percussion designer and instructor, Adam Clay, outdoes himself with this imaginative journey. Exploding with emotion and vivid scenery, “Twinkle, Twinkle”is the culmination of child-like innocence fused with grand majesty, dark beauty and tenuous excitement. This show is for the musical purist as well as the audio-visual thrill seeker. There are many ways to present a show based on the constellations. (Shall we say the sky is the limit?) Here are two diverse ideas to spark your creativity. One scenario is to base the show on star constellations with the floor and back drops painted (or silk screened) to represent the solar system. Performers’ outfits could also be mainly dark with clusters of bright colors to depict the look of stars in the night sky. Another idea is to create a sense of a child’s bedroom and tell a story of fascination (fear?) of the night sky. There are also numerous children’s books that could assist in creating a youthful presentation.
