Stand-up comedy for lovers of Waldorf! Join us on Wednesday, May 3, at 7:00 pm at CLWS for a loving, irreverent, and hilarious look at Waldorf education and the culture of Waldorf schools with Waldorf educator, author, and professional stand-up comedian Ronald Koetzsch.
The show includes segments on:
- The Steiner Lifestyle Points Survey
- How to Survive the Class Teacher Home Visit
- How to Know Your Temperament and Change Your Spouse’s
- Retirement Strategies for Waldorf Teachers
- The Waldorf-Speak Phrase Dictionary
- and more…
The show usually concludes with an appearance by Ron’s alter-ego, the world famous eurythmist Eva Maria Sophia Christina Duders zu, von, und unter von Dudersdorf. Eva is the originator of “Spewrhythmy,” a new art form that combines artistic speech and eurythmy. She performs (in full eurythmy garb) one of her original poems.
This event is rated “G” and is free and open to all! 7th and 8th grade students are also welcome to attend, and we’d love to see a few alumni faces, too. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
