Inspired by the classic children's book The Story of Ferdinand, Ferdinand tells the poignant story of Tom, a single dad, struggling to go with the flow and raise his son in a world determined to make him fight. Raised on the story of his namesake Ferdinand, the bull who refused to fight but just wanted to sit and smell the flowers, young Ferdy learns the hard lessons in life as his father endeavors to shield him from the harsh realities of adulthood.
Giovanni the Fearless is a family-friendly commedia dell'arte folk opera about the power of love, a troupe of traveling actors, an old castle, two young lovers, and a couple of ghosts. When Giovanni encounters the Bombasto Family commedia troupe, he becomes enchanted with the star of the show, the beautiful Colombina. Tricked by Colombina's father and siblings into believing that a treasure lies hidden in a nearby haunted castle, he deals first with a fake ghost (a giant puppet constructed by the Bombastos) and then an actual ghost. In the end, he discovers that the real treasure is his love for Colombina. Spectacular projections by Bank Street Films, clowning, tumbling, puppetry, special effects, and onstage musicians enhance this romantic musical comedy.
In Old Turtle and the Broken Truth, a truth falls like a star from the sky and breaks into two pieces. When the villagers discover only half of the truth, it causes so many problems that Little One, a brave young girl, decides to search for the missing half. With the help of Old Turtle and many animal friends, Little One is able to mend the broken truth and make it whole again — "you are loved…and so are they" — creating a better world for everyone.
Old Turtle and the Broken Truth is powerful allegory about accepting and welcoming differences that will resonate with children and adults alike, particularly at a time when the world is doing otherwise.
Note: This show is recommended for ages six and up.
Earth has gone to the dogs, literally. After "the incident," humans have gone underground and into space, leaving dogs to run the planet. But the Space Pirates have decided that they need to pave over Earth to put up a parking lot for their new nightclub on the moon. The Puppies have to join forces with their archenemies the Ninja Kittens and, along with the assistance of the Great Oracle, must seek the power of the greatest weapon they've never heard of. Epic adventures and battles ensue, and along the way, we learn a deep, dark secret...or three. Will the Puppies turn tail and run? Will the Ninja Kittens — ooh, string. Can the Earth be saved from certain construction? Will it all end in discord or harmony?
The Space Pirate Puppy Musical! is written and directed by Heather Bagnall and Luke Tudball with original music by award-winning composer and lyricist Steve Schalchlin.
While many children's theater troupes tell stories to kids, The Story Pirates believe that every kid has a story to tell. Made up of professional actors, improv comedians, and teaching artists, this troupe uses stories written by elementary school students as source material for over-the-top, sidesplitting musical plays. With songs, props, music videos, and puppets, the Story Pirates bring to life onstage what children have put down on paper (and computer).
At a typical show, there is no typical. Topics range from kung fu ninja babies fighting crime to the eternal love between the devil and a guy she meets at Starbucks. It's a world where cats can fly and Tickle Monsters have been known to take over the world. If the show sells out, the audience is treated to ice cream and cookies at the end!
Discover the secrets of your favorite neighborhood or museum on a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt. You won't be collecting objects (put back that statue!) but searching for answers to tricky and humorous questions. You can decipher a message in the sky in Central Park, find out what to do with a "fun goon" in Chinatown, track ghosts in Greenwich Village, solve a murder mystery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and much more. No knowledge of any hunt location is required — you just need a sharp mind and a good pair of shoes.
