An evening of songs, stories, and sights, featuring the New York based artist and musician Ali Dineen, along with local legends the Comix Strip.

Come enjoy this family-friendly group of great performance artists.

The ComiX Trip

The ComiX Trip uses an overhead projector and live sound effects to tell the comic book stories that are projected. These stories range from science fiction to ghost stories, but are always whimsical and fun, and ok for kids (ages 6 to 106). Mrs. Crabtree is the cartoonist and storyteller, and you might even learn a few science facts in her fantasy classroom.
