Ocean State Theatre Company, currently celebrating its Fifth Anniversary Season as the not-for-profit producing entityat the historic Theatre By The Sea, welcomes back, by popular demand, PBS' Mr. Steve, who will be bringing his high-energy interactive music to the seaside playhouse for two performances on Friday, July 13, 2012.
Steve Roslonek of SteveSongs has been writing and performing his award-winning music for kids and families for the past eleven years. Steve blends participatory songs, clever stories and great melodies to create what the Boston Globe called "not just a musical journey, but an entertaining, interactive and educational one." A rising star on the national kids' music scene, Steve has delighted audiences throughout the country, including prestigious venues like Symphony Space in New York City, Wolftrap in Vienna VA, The Kennedy Center and the White House in Washington, D.C., and Fenway Park in Boston.
In May 2008, Steve took on the exciting new role of "Mr. Steve," co-host of the PBS KIDS preschool destinationthat features the popular shows "Curious George," "Clifford the Big Red Dog," "Dragon Tales," and "Super Why."
Steve wrote his first children's song back in 1997 for his brother, then a first grade teacher. Positive feedback and inspiration quickly followed, leading Steve to record his first album, Morning 'Til Night, in 1999. That same year Steve left his job as a business consultant to pursue this adventure full time. Eleven years and six albums later, Steve has performed at over 3000 shows across the country. He's won numerous prestigious awards, including two Parents' Choice Gold Awards, a Nappa Honor, two iParenting Media Awards, and two Children's Music Web Awards.
After the performance, families can enjoy refreshments which will be available for purchase at the gazebo.
