Artrageous | SAT OCT 14 | 2pm & 5pm | Join us before the show for Family Day!
Step into this outrageous adventure of arts: the only show where you can witness the fusion of live art, rock concert, imaginative movement, vocal performance, comedy, blacklight Bunraku, Artpunk wear, and inclusion in one magical experience. Feel the anticipation to see if the artist will complete the painting in time and guess what is being created until the very last brushstroke. Artrageous is the only immersive art experience where you are the heart of the show. You’ll take a magical journey to a blacklight world where things may not be as they seem, up is down and the depth is all a perception, as you try to discover what reality is. Post-show: Bring a t-shirt or item to put in our Creation Lab where we create a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art for you (limited availability up to 100 people).
We invite our community to explore Zoellner's building and experience a fun day filled with art activities, treats and FREE performances by Christopher Agostino's StoryFaces.* Check our website as the day gets closer for more details.
*FREE StoryFaces performances will be held in the Fowler Black Box Theatre at 11am & 12:30pm.
About StoryFaces: The stories come to life on the faces of the audience in this innovative and exciting storytelling show for adults and family audiences, in which volunteers are brought on stage and face paintedto illustrate stories as artist Christopher Agostino tells captivating folktales, and his uniquely animated original stories — ranging from the comic adventures of The Amazing Face Story to the heroic tale of Punia and the King of the Sharks and an ancient tale asking the timeless question: Is Life Fair? He is the artistic director of Transformations Facepainting, a company that has transformed thousands of people annually for the Bronx Zoo, NYC Parks Department, the NYC Housing Authority, and special events like the World Science Festival.
Please note: tickets must be purchased to attend the Artrageous performance.
Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas | SAT DEC 3 | 3pm
Fancy Nancy is not too fancy and is someone with many good qualities that you want your children to learn from. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money, but as usual, things don't turn out the way Nancy would like. In the end Nancy teaches us that her family and especially her sister, Jojo, are more important than any fancy stuff that she could buy.
Erth's Dinosaur Zoo | FRI FEB 2 | 7:30pm
Get ready for the ultimate playdate — 65 million years in the making — as Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE guides your family on a breathtaking tour through pre-historic Australia. You’ll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other giant puppet creatures in a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain children.
The Rainbow Fish | SAT MAR 2 | 11am
Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents a tale about the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colors of the rainbow. He is admired--and resented--by the entire underwater world until a clever octopus advises him to give each fish one of his scales. Further adventures follow as Rainbow Fish finds the courage to explore the great unknown deep sea, discovering a new world with wonderful sights and friendly creatures of all shapes, sizes and colors who are eager to make his acquaintance. The underworld wonderland is the setting for an introduction to the concept of opposites.
