The Emperor's Nightingale by Damon Chua is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Nightingale" set in 18th-century China. It brings to light the youthful exploits of the future Emperor Qianlong, who befriends a magical bird who helps him learn what he must do to be king. The play employs traditional Chinese lion dance, puppetry, and a pair of tigers and pandas to tell this fun, thrilling tale. A show for the whole family.
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.
