Looking for fun and affordable things to do with your kids this March in Nassau County, Long Island? We've got details on the top family events happening this month, including family-friendly theater, a sneak peak at the circus, St. Patrick's Day events, and more.


GalumphaMarch 4

Body Art

Head to Landmark on Main Street to watch as three performers bring you a virtual feast of movement, innovative choreography, and hilarious acrobatics. Galumpha arouses the imagination and highlights the beauty, precision, and intrigue of the performers who present a well-orchestrated body of work that is aptly complemented by striking visual effects.



Golden Dragon AcrobatsMarch 4

Dragon Dance

China’s Golden Dragon Acrobats combine award-winning acrobatics, spectacular costumes, and traditional dance and music into one spellbinding show at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts.



Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

March 10

Clowning Around

The clowns are coming to town, and you’ll be the first to see them! The world-famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is bringing its “greatest show on earth” to Long Island (the Nassau Coliseum, to be exact, from March 21-26), but first it’s stopping by the Long Island Children’s Museum. Hold on to your hats, kids, because there’s no telling what this contingent of big-nosed, suspenders-wearing zanies will do. This is the circus’ 10th year performing at the museum, and it promises to be an amusing and amazing spectacle of artistry that’s full of more than a few laughs.



Breaking Up is Hard to DoMarch 17

Looking for Love

Set at a Catskills resort in 1960, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do (playing at Theatre Three) is the comic story of Lois and Marge, two friends from Brooklyn in search of good times and romance over one wild Labor Day weekend. The score showcases 18 Neil Sedaka classics, including “Where the Boys Are,” “Laughter in the Rain,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Sweet Sixteen,” “Love Will Keep Us Together,” “Calendar Girl,” and, of course, the chart-topping title song.



Nate the Great by Marjorie Weinman SharmatMarch 24


A crime, a clue, a magnifying glass…what’s missing? Nate the Great! In the tradition of Charlie Chan, Sherlock Holmes, and Inspector Poirot, Nate the kid-detective has a nose for the unconventional, which makes for hilarious results. Based on the classic book series by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, this musical at Landmark on Main Street highlights virtues of friendship and teamwork -- something both kids and their parents can appreciate.



The Wizard of Oz playSaturdays in March
