Event description:

Events for youths and families takes place every Saturday with a different show to enjoy. Families will be given seating priority.  Seating is limited; first come, first served.

Oct 5: A Bilingual Family Concert with Mister G. Ben Gundersheimer (MISTER G) is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist, and educator. Hailed as “a bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post, he tours internationally playing everywhere from Lollapalooza and Lincoln Center to climate change rallies on Capitol Hill. His spirited bilingual performances aim to help children see each other across borders and foster cross-cultural connections.

Oct 12: New York International Children's Film Festival: Kid Flicks One. 

Bigger, brighter, bolder—change is in the air in NYICFF Kid Flicks 1, brimming with fun and clever stories of growth and transformation. If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP. Catching up on penmanship is the name of the game if you want to graduate from pencils in the winning doc Pen Licence. Then little ones are in charge and grown-ups get to play when the hilarious Flipped reworks the script. Recommended ages 3-7.

Oct 19: Schoolhouse Rock by Plaza Theatrical Productions. 

"Schoolhouse Rock" A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, it's lighting up stages everywhere – from school multi-purpose rooms to university and regional theatres all around the country. Schoolhouse Rock Live! follows Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as "Just a Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly," and "Conjunction Junction."

Oct 26: Hot Peas 'n Butter Live! Music for Every Nation & Generation. 

Led by Danny Lapidus, the award-winning family music band, Hot Peas 'n Butter, wows thousands of young audiences across the nation every year with their interactive, roots music from around the world.

With eight award-winning albums and numerous music videos (some of which have been featured on Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon TV), Hot Peas ‘n Butter makes new friends everywhere they go!

Lauded for their “hot and mellow multicultural groove” (The Los Angeles Times), Hot Peas ‘n Butter mixes a tasty combination of traditional Latin music, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, Jazz, Bluegrass, Country, and Rock, bringing fans of all ages to their feet. Indeed, “This serving is the kind that will please musical appetites” (The New York Times).
