Speaking of programs, here’s a curated couple of events:

Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill presents VEGGIE BOOGIE!

VEGGIE BOOGIE! is a poetic coming-of-age family friendly musical written by Bronx born and raised poet and playwright Ave Maria Cross.  A child comes to terms with the concepts of free will, self-awareness and the loss of innocence in this madcap theatrical performance.  Insights and revelations come through a wacky witch doctor and a spiritual African stilt walker who both make use of magic spells and vegetable potions in order to teach kids about the importance of eating vegetables. This 60-minute musical meets storytelling is best for children ages 3-8. Free with Museum admission.

Saturday, March 19th; 1:00 – 4:00 pm
