The popular PBS KIDS® TV series, Sid the Science Kid is coming to NYC this April. As part of the affordable Target Series, the interactive performance will teach kids all about the five senses through comedy and music. Following the show National Grid will hold a free festival to celebrate Earth Day.
In this new musical adventure Sid and his friends take an incredible journey through the five senses: sight, sound, taste, smell and touch, and discover that there’s a very special super duper sixth sense! Join Sid, Gabriela, Gerald, May, and Teacher Suzie as they explore, ask questions, and share lots of interactive moments with the audience through special sensory effects that fill the theater. Featuring music from the hit TV show and content based in national science learning, this high-energy musical will bring out the curious scientist in every child.
Sid the Science Kid – Live! was created for the stage by Michael Lewis (veteran Broadway performer and producer of ImaginOcean), John Tartaglia (creator and writer of ImaginOcean and Tony Award-nominated actor, who also directed this show), and The Jim Henson Company.
Following the performance, BCBC will host its seventh annual National Grid Earth Day Celebration on the plaza outside Walt Whitman Theatre. Featuring interactive family activities, educational materials, street performers and giveaways, this free community festival will highlight the need for conserving energy, recycling, and heightening awareness of the environmental global issues that we face today.
The show is recommended for kids ages 4 and up.
